  1. There was a great rivalry and bad blood between the boys of Leamnaleaha and the boys of Fenagh One night when the Leamnaleaha boys were going to a Kilrush fair they met some of the Fenagh boys at Tullycrine. Then the fight started and while they were fighting the cattle went into a bog. They fought with big sticks and the Fenagh were badly wounded. It was a terrible fight; all their clothes were torn and there was blood running from some of them. Then they started looking for the cattle but they had a great job in getting them.
