There was a famous Coursing Field down in Lismany. It is now called the Course field, and there is a house built there now. People used to come great distances to this coursing. There was a woman who used to come from Belfast who was famous for all the good dogs she brought Major Pollock that started this coursing, he used to have nets set here and there through the bog to catch hares.
