Local historians now believe the great maon didnae fight a battle rather he had tae settle a dispute over ownership of a ae prize ferret which turned intae a bit of a ding-dong.

Ah enjoyed the wee bit oan Dromore, but ah was trubbled oer the heid o' the Irish translation o' the toon's name. A goat oan the elektric telephone tae ma Irish Spakin fren', Phelim O'Malachy na' og O'Breflibhininshibherish Mor. He reckons that it comes frae the very auld Irish "Dumpáil Mor" meanin "Big Dump". He cud be wrang mind, fur, as awl Banbridge fowk knaw, its mair o' a wee dirty hole.
