Shane's Story

Dead Body

John Tiernan told me about someone who lived back near Carrowmore that a man would walk along the beach to pick up wood. Then he found a dead body and he picked it up and turned around. The hand of the dead man swung around and hit him in the head. This happened during World War 1 and it was at night.
