Árd Bán [duchas:4389966]

Once upon a time there was a man and a woman getting married. The man lived in Drumkeelan and the girl lived in Stone Park. When the day of the wedding came, the man was milking a cow in the morning before he left. On their way to the Church, they met a woman with red hair and her in her bare feet. It is said that they never had a day's luck from that day to the day they died after meeting the red woman. The groom threw up a glass of whiskey for luck but it was no good.
