It is said that if a man answered the ghost, the sound would come closer. It would get louder as it came closer. When it was overhead, it was so loud it could deafen a man.

After a while the men could no longer put up with the ghost. They went to Reverend Murdock to see what he could do. He went to the grave to say a mass. Some say that the ghost was not heard after Reverend Murdoch said the mass. Others say that the ghostly whoops were heard long after.
