  1. V. Along the Ballymascanlon shore is a small cove called "The Bishop's hole". It seems that in old times a bishop of the name of Donnelly had a hiding place in the sandy bank and he used this little cove as a bathing place. His fate is not known but some say he was captured and that his body was interred in Ballymascanlon churchyard. It is quite a common saying "Let us have a swim in the bishop's hole".

Well just so they were going to flog the woman her landlord arrived on the scene. He asked 'What was this about". And on being told he said they had no authority to carry out the sentence as she was one of his tenants. So she was set free and the "Landlord" was very well thanked by the peasantry for his timely aid.
