There are two towers near Banagher on the banks of the Shannon, and they were supposed to be built by Cromwell at the time that he drove all the Leinster people into Connaght, and it is said that he kept soldiers in the towers to keep them in Connaght. One can go up to the top of the tower by steps on the inside. On a summer's evening a long time ago a man who lived near went up on the tower on to the top of it. This man used to going up but he was not long up when he felt himself being carried and left down on the ground.
