  1. Long ago there was a woman used to come to the side of a mountain every night. One night there was a man coming from Bantry to Castletown and he met the woman. She was going to kill him and he had a steel knife in his pocket. He took it out and he stuck in the woman's heart and she fell. He went home and he told some one to go with him in the morning to find the knife. He got the knife stuck in a lump of jelly.
