My father Mr. F. Hunt told me this story. Kennedy was called the informer in 1(8)798. He was lifting a big stone on the road which leads to the sea and he overated himself. There was a woman passing down the road and her name was Mrs. Byrne. Kennedy said, "he was dying," and Mrs Byrne said, "die, and the devil die with your you," so he collapsed. He was buried in Kilcoole grave-yard and a piece of grass never grows on the ground which is over his heart.
