3 Giants [duchas:4647357]
Once there lived on Sheemore three giants and it is said that they challenged each other in weight throwing. The first giant threw a stone which landed in Notley's Hill in Annaduff. The second giant threw one the same size, and it landed a short distance from the first one. The third giant threw one which rested across the other two, froming the shape of a house. These stones are still to be seen in Annaduff and cattle take shelter under them. It is said that the stones were 14' long and that they stuck down 6' in the ground, when thrown.
