In Broomfield there is a townland called Carrigagha. It gets this name on account of a ford. It is said that a man was crossing the ford when he met a small woman. He stood and looked at her. She was dressed in white. She had long white hair and was combing it with a comb. She told him that his mother was going to die. In a few hours later his mother died and the little woman came in and stood outside his window and cried. Now there is a very high hill in Carrigagha. A river begins at the bottom of the hill. The ford is in the middle of the river. It is sometimes called a "kesh" now because there are big long planks nailed with iron bars across the ford.
