  1. There was a man named Padraic Nee living in Lettergesh. One night he was visiting and when he was coming home he saw a woman at a fence and she was dressed in white
    He thought it was some one who came out to frighten him and he went to see who it was. When he found out it was a woman who was long dead he got very frightened and called his dog. When the dog came the woman dissappeared.
