    During the Famine many people were buried uncoffined. In the townland of Cloomahara three people are supposed on the top of a hill. One Winter night when a man from the village was coming home from visiting he saw many lights where it was said the people were buried. By the lights he could see that they were eating and drinking. For the three following nights he saw the same thing, Since then they were never seen.
