A Story 10-5-‘38
There was one a man living near Kilmaine who was a bad talker. One day he went to Kilmaine town and he met a gentleman on a horse and he asked hiim where he was going. The man said he was in Kilmaine and I am going home to Kilmore. He said Kilmore instead of Cregmore because he could not say Cregmore. The man on the horse then said he would shoot him bevause he said he was in Kilmaine. When the man was going to kill him he thought he was going to Kilmore before.
