There is an authentic old Fairy Fort on the farm, and an ancient 'Swearing Stone', on which it's said Oisin lay his hand, on his return to the Land of Erin , after he had spent 400 years in Tir na nOg ( Land of Youth ) If you stand in the centre of the fairy fort and close your eyes, and listen with a loving peaceful heart, then you will hear the ceoil ( music ) of the Fairies.
