    "Ancient Stones"
    There were monks living in the district of Tulla long ago.The monks had a bull trained to bring provisions from Ennis to Tullla.One day when he was on his way to Tulla with provisions he was attacked by robbers.
    He roared and one of the monks in Tulla heard him and cursed whoever was at him.Immediately the four robbers were were turned to stone.,and the four stones are still to be seen on the old Spancilhill road.
    On the top of Keeragh crag there is a little stone house and everyone who passes that way puts a stone on top of it.,because James Burke died there.
