Lough Ness has not all the honours to itself.
Loughrea is now plagued by some strange animal (in olden times it would be called a Piast), which is very fastidious in its choice of food.
Its menu consists of eggs, fish, poultry and lamb. It does not recognise any rights of property. A local organisation is offering a reward of fifty pounds to any person that will capture or destroy it.

Additional information on the Piast may be accessed from T.J. Westropp’s A Folklore Survey of County Clare at
