Not very long ago I heard a fairy tale. There is a little lane in Kilcoole, in which two houses are situated. Not far down the lane is a corner which is called the white woman's corner. It happened that one night some man got a white sheet and he sat on the stone in the corner and waited for Mr. May, as he reached the corner he saw the white man. He was turning back and the white man jumped off the stone out on the lane. He was taking the sheet from around him when he saw a white woman in front of him and he died soon after the fright he got.
