A fairy story
There is a field in Finlay's land in the townland of Coundry, and in the parish of Derrylane, which is called "Call-heam." It is said that fairies used to be there about 60 years ago. One night as Mr Biggers, of Bohora, was going past this field the fairies stopped him. They asked him to buy an ounce of tobacco else they would lead him astray. He bought the tobacco for sixpence. When he had it bought it turned out to be a piece of black stick. This stick used to be kept in his daughter's house.
