My mother told me this story, about a mysterious light my uncle Patrick Cosgrave of Innisbeg saw.
One night about 30 years ago my uncle was coming home from a neighbors house when suddenly he saw a light in Drumahaird Fort. He stood to watch it and it moved out of the fort and across the marshy fields and passed almost at his feet as he stood on the hill.
He watched it moving on until it disappeared into Kilnaglare Fort.
He got scared and ran home and was nervous.
