About fourteen years ago Mrs Walsh of Foghill (Annie Loughney) and her two daughters Kathleen and Mary were going down to the sea gathering crusac. On their way they sat down to take a rest. Mary looked out at the sea and was surprised to see a coffin and a person beside swimming in the water. She told her mother and sister to look out and they did. They saw the coffin and the mermaid too. They were afraid and returned home. That day week following their grandmother Kate Hogan died, and everybody said that the coffin was a sign of her death.
