  1. II One night after midnight there was a man coming home from the direction of the Shannon where he was seeing his cattle. This man happened to look behind him and there he saw a woman all dressed in white. He got afraid and started to run as fast as he could and the woman after him running also. Although he was afraid he succeeded in reaching the road, then he chanced to look around again but the woman had disappeared.
