In the fateful year of '98 they sent ot the Croppy rendezvous on Tara a consignment of whiskey. The insurgents got drunk and fell an easy prey to the soldiers.
Hence the Croppies grave on Tara Hill.James Neill remembers seeing Parnell address a meeting in Navan.
Parnell was tall, thin dark wearing side whiskers and moustache.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
- James Neill often heard the old people saying that when St. Patrick was on his way to Tara he sat down to rest on the Hill of Skryne. He left his sandals one side and when he woke up he hadn't them.
They were stolen and sold in Tara for the price of a drink.
Fr. Tiernan P.P. says they were stolen in Garlow Cross and on that acct there will always be a "rogue" in that locality.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
