An old woman of eighty came to the country. No one knew where the woman came from. The woman lived in a cottage near a high thorn hedge on the banks of a river. The old woman, though she is forgotten now, is referred to as the old witch of Glentow. The people of Glentow were afraid of the woman. They blamed her for disappearance of sheep belonging to a woman who had refused to give the old woman a meal. After that incident, the woman was not harmed but the farmers of Glentow continued to suffer. Once, two young men swore that they would slay the witch.
