  1. The ghost which was giving trouble at Petersville house about 65 years ago was said to be risen in Tuckers pass by the priest. This pass led from the house to the bog. When the priests were looking for the Ghost to settle him they found him there. They setteled him in a room in the house and built up the windows. This is a small room at the back of the house which can not be seen from the ground. It is said that the walls are covered with blood and the room full of papers.
