There is a fairy fort in the Deer Park, in Oak Park. It is round in shape and has a stone wall all round it. There is light seen in it, and music is often heard. The people were afraid at first when they used to see the light. There is another fairy fort in Knocknacree. It was built with a ditch around it. One evening, a Mrs. Kelly was out in the field, and she left the young lad, sitting in the ditch near the fort, and the young lad got disformed.
