From the Irish Folklore Commission archives, Michael Dames wrote that "Tom Hamon recalls the I938 archaeological excavation of the Giants' Grave, a Neolithic tomb, standing close to the south shore: 'Giants' Grave: they excavated that. They took the bones, put 'em in a bag and brought them here to the castle. I worked with them. But I believe, - I've been told it by several people, that if every bean si in Ireland were ever clanned together that night, that the greatest keening and crying was heard all around the lake, and through the hills, and even farther on, away even into the bog, the Red Bog, and across even to Knockderc."
