There was a man living in Headford whose name was Mr Divilliy. Mr. Divilliy had a horse in a field in the Domain. When he went up to see the horse the next morning there were branches of trees an dead crows thrown on the road and he was afraid that his horse was dead. When he went in the field the horse was eating grass and he left him there but after a few nights the horse was killed by lightning because there was awful lightning that night.
