A Story - Margaret Pack

About sixty years ago there was a woman named Margaret Lynch. She lived at the foot of Feddyglass wood. She went round the country selling clothes. She was commonly known as Margaret Pack because she was always carrying a pack on her back. When she was too old she bought a donkey and cart and went through the country with it. One day she was going to Mr Porterfields house she had to turn a corner at Ballylennon and when she came to the corner she pulled the wrong rein and the cart overturned and Margaret Pack was got dead under the cart the next morning.
