  1. A fisherman in the Fergus near Bunratty noticed a strange looking cat observing him from the wall "Mannahow" "Mannahow" said the cat. "When you go home tell Gizzeh Gazzel that Paul Hazel is dead.
    The fisherman told his wife that night sitting by the fire. The house cat was dozing on the hob. When she heard the words "Paul Hazel is dead" she uttered a loud yell and disappeared into the night. She was never seen again.
