About 70 years ago the people generally married on Tuesdays and Sundays.
The only way the people had for taking them to the church was to go on horse back.
Susan Foody Clonnanaha and Michael Reidy Dysart went to the chapel on horseback to be married.
In the race coming home from the chapel Thomas Flanagan fell from his horse and broke his leg.
