Then the old weasel went to see if the little ones were dead, but when she reached the nest she found them safely. Then the old weasel seeing that they were safe, went and did her best to spill the drink, for fear the men would drink it. There is an ancient Castle at Robertstown on the land of Mr. O Reilly, Kilbeg. In this Castle lived a wretch named "Gutters" who was in the habit of sitting at a window and shooting at passers-by. Several attempts were made to catch him. In the same parish there remains of another Castle on the top of Ardamagh Hill or Castle Hill as it is called.
In this castle the parish Priest watched for weeks to see if "Gutters" would leave his Castle. At last one morning early, he saw "Gutters" in a field. The Priest got his horse and gun and approached "Gutters" and shot him dead. The spot can still be seen where "Gutters" fell.
People passing by, throw a stone on the spot where Gutters fell. A very remarkable thing is that the Castle is good repair. The Castle is now covered with ivy. The blood of his victims is still on the stairs. Some people say that he was killed in the Castle. The people went into the house to dance and the Ghost appeared and chased them from the house and followed them up the road. About thirty years after a woman named Mrs Carrick who died about four years ago was sitting by the fire at twelve o clock.
The Ghost then appeared and told her that the house was his and ordered her to get out. She went out and waited until Mr Carrick came home. The two of them went into the house and they saw the Ghost disappearing into the ground.

In a house at Ballinacleva about a mile from Moynalty, and at present occupied by a family named Carrick, strange happenings are supposed to have occured about fifty years ago and further strange nocturnal incidents are supposed to have happened there recently. About fifty years ago the present house was then a ruin. One day a number of children where playing around the ruined house. Suddenly they heard a noise.
Some of them got afraid and ran away, while the others went around to the back of the house to see what had happened. Then they heard the sound of horses at the back of the house. When they went round they saw a number of huntsmen on horseback. They had a pack of hounds with them. As soon as the children saw them they disappeared. Then the house began to shake and lights were seen in one room. The children ran away and did not come back for a long time. About a year after that the children were playing there again. They were throwing stones in through a window and they heard a voice telling them not to throw any more stones.
Then they went over to the window and they saw a black figure in the room.
Another night there was a bonfire lighted beside the house which was then occupied by a family named O Brien. If he hit the anvil strong, it is said: He would make the devil appear. If the water that the smith used was sprinkled in a haunted house it would hunt the ghost.
