The Vanishing Horsemen: Irish Folklore

Loughareema lake lies in an area riddled with sink-holes, and it empties rapidly through these to underground watercourses, and can fill again quickly as rainwater drains off the surrounding bogs. The old road ran across the dry bed of the lake, and one dark night long ago, a Colonel McNeill, his coachmen and horses drowned when the driver misjudged the state of the water level. It is said that their ghosts still haunt the lake.
