Summary

First-hand account of seeing a tiny woman on a moonlit road in Ireland.

Bella Higgins was in Ireland, near Mitchelstown. On a moonlit night, she went with her mother and her husband to find her fifteen-year-old brother, who hadn't caught up with them. The road passed through a wood. They saw a little woman coming, making no noise. She was only twelve or fifteen inches high. Bella describes the clothes she was wearing. Bella's mother spoke to her, but there was no answer. [Break to change tape.] Bella's husband warned her not to speak a third time. When they met Bella's brother, he and Bella went to look for the little lady, but she had disappeared.
