One night there was a man dead in the village of Killamonagh. There was a lot at the wake. Two men went out and they went up the road. When they were up at the Clocan (where a small stream runs under the road) they saw a man and he was riding a black horse and he had no head. The two men went near him and when they came towards him he began to become white. They went inside he wall to go across the field. There were furze in the field and when they came near them, the man and the black horse were there again.
