All got away before dark as the "pooka" was supposed "to be out' that night.

On one occasion, a party who had visited their friends after the bonfire, were frightened almost to death, on the way home . Their path led past the remains of the bonfire . A mighty wind tore across the place throughout the neighbouring rushes, and left a road in its trail. The bonfire ceased to be held there afterwards. It was held about a quarter of a mile nearer to the houses.
Now , the bonfire is held near a cross roads as the young people are fewer in number and it requires more than one townsland to make up a number sufficient for the dance.
The fire from the remains of the bonfire is no longer taken away for the gardens and 'pookas' are regarded as things of a foolish age
