__________________________
In a corner of County Meath there is an old Abbey named Fore. Certain properties are attributed to parts of this abbey which to the present day are unexplainable.
Beside the abbey is a rock from under which a stream flows-and even though the rock be lifted up, no leak can be seen in the ground

There is a tree growing over the stream whose wood can never be burned.
