"Wending my way back by the boggy and rocky paths through the mountains to the high road, I arrived late in the evening at Pettigo, with humbled feelings, almost regretting that I was so unfortunate as to verify so much that I had previously heard of the superstitions practised at this place.

The Lake is upon the estate of Mr. Leslie, of Glasslough, county of Monaghan, who derives 200 per year for the right of ferry. It has proved a profitable speculation to those who have farmed it. The usual rate of charge is sixpence each, and it is calculated that from ten to twelve thousand visit the island in the course of the season ; these pay dues to the amount of a shilling to two shillings and sixpence a head."
