A light is seen somewhere in the district which foretells death to some one of the Corridons here, or America or any pother country where one of them dies. The Banshee or a Caoine is also heard before the death of one of them. When one of the Corridons die it is said that three others of the same name will be buried there within the year.
The third burial place is in Glendahalin, and no adults are buried there, but the young children who die soon after birth.
