- The lepreachan is known locally as the “gankanaugh”. He is about eighteen inches high. There is a story about a man named James Clarke in my townland one night he was coming off his “ceilidhe” and passing through a field called “Crocknahorna” in which there was a “lone bush” and on passing by he heard the most beautiful music ever he heard. When he reached home he brought out his wife to hear the music when she came out to listen to the music but when she came out no music was heard. Long after “gankanaughs” pipes were picked up at the place. There is no stories of “maremaids” in this locality on account of it being inland. “Galafungly” and “Rassna” are names of fields in which there are “lone bushes”.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
