Here is an horrific and sad story, worthy of reporting for the season that's in it. The item was recorded by the historian Canon Carrigan in 1905 in his "History of Antiquities of Ossory". However the story is likely is likely to be at least several hundreds years old, transmitted orally across the generations, with likely varying degrees of accuracy. The places names mentioned are still largely recognised and locations know, in the Garryricken and Butlerswood area.
