There was once a man living in "Cluan - Dun Abhainn" and his name was Mr. Nolan. One night on his way home from Headford from playing cards he met a man who was dead for six months. He was in the next field from his own house when he met this man and he had to get out of his way. When he went into the house his wife asked him was he drunk because he was shivering with fear. In six months time the man himself died.
