Anna who gave her name to the townland of Shanballyanne, built herself a Court of Poetry. This court of poetry is said to have been situated in a field owned by John Wall and it is said that Anna can still be heard at her poetry at certain periods.
As years went on the owners wished to remove a fence that ran through the centre of the field. All went well until they came to a certain point. Then everyman who attempted the work fell ill. The fence is still to be seen.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
