  1. Hidden Treasures
    Many old people say that there is a treasure hidden in Ballinageragh. It was placed under a mound of earth near the Blessed Well by the Friars. It is supposed to be a large crock of gold. The Friars hid it there because they were afraid that the Danes would came and take it from them.
    Tradition says that a hound of enormous size guards the treasure at night. Many attempts were made to dig up the gold but the treasure seekers were driven away by a hound. Of late no one has exerted himself.
