1) I In this locality there are a few haunted houses . Many years ago a man named Mr Blood lived in the townland of Brickhill . This man started to build a new house when he started to roof it, it would be taken off again.
This happened for two or three turns. At last he knew that there was no good in trying to roof it, so he left that place and the house as it was. The walls of that house are still to be seen but the most of the stones were taken away last year to build a new house.
Mr Blood was a Land-lord here in Brickhill and he has a vault in Crohane Churchyard dating seventeen thirty eight. This story was told to me by Michael Gleason Brickhill Cratloe Co Clare.
