A Huge Giant
Once upon a time a mighty giant lived on the top of the Ox mountains. He was very proud of his great strength and like to show his power to the people of the surrounding district who greatly feared him.
One day he was standing on the top of the mountain, he took a huge stone weighing about 50 tons in his hands and said he would throw it into the sea. Now the sea was ten miles away. A crowd gathered to watch the feat.
But he failed in his work.
The giant flung with all his might but alas; the rock fell 1 mile short of the sea and rested in Killenduff.
In his anger he hurried to the spot and with his sword he cut the rock in two halves.
People say if one should go through the split three times they would be crushed to death.
