  2. Funchin Bog
    Some years ago as some men were draining the bog that lies between Moate & Timicat they came across what was an old road about two feet under the surface running across the bog in a south westerly direction. This road was solidly made with stakes at the bottom covered over with branches of trees, furze & heath. Tradition has it that O'Sullivan Beare with his followers marched over this road when driven from Dunboy Castle on his journey to Breffni.
