About 40 years ago, two men named Michael Mc Assey and Edward Neill were going to Tullow when they met a dog about five feet high. The dog turned into a very tall man, with an umbrella in his hand. After a few minutes the tall man turned into a very large copper-coloured beast, with fiery eyes and huge horns. This large animal threw itself on the trap that they were driving, but it did the two men no harm. Edward Neill is buried in Benekerry, and Michael Mc Assey is buried in Tullow.
