Lickbarrahen
Long ago a Saint named Bappachán used to travel about from place to place in a ship or boat. One day he came into Lickbarrahen. He landed at a place called the Sleac. He walked through the Sleac and some of the earth or soil from his feet remained on the Sleac, and he left the print of his foot three times on the Sleac. This earth or soil cured any wound or sore to which it was applied. The saint lived for some time in Lickbarrahen. The townland is called after him. The lec or Sleac on which he landed is still called the Sleac and is a famous fishing place. One day Bappachán slept in a little field in the townland, and it is said that some animal, pig or otherwise, injured him so badly that he died as a result. The field where he died is called 'Clay na Cille' A heap of white stones marks the spot. Collected by John Harrington
