pets. There is a story told of a night hunt after a fox. Long ago, when the kennels were in Burton Hall, a great disturbance was heard amongst the hounds, one night. The huntsman going out to see the cause found a fox on the top of the wall above the dogs. He went and called Mr. Burton, who was "Master of the Hounds" He had a couple of hunters brought out at once. He released the hounds, and a great chase began, which ended in a blacksmith's cabin in Co. Wexford, where the fox took cover for safety.
