Many thanks to L. Johnson for suggesting this location.

Swords Road in Santry was once a favourite robbery location of highwayman Michael Collier. Collier had a habit of making stuffed mannequins and sit them in the roadside ditch. When he held up a coach, people would think he had a gang. Although he partook in robberies, Collier was very much a Robin Hood type figure. He took from the gentry to give to the poor. Finally caught, he was sent to the West Indies. However, Collier escaped back to Ireland, but died a drunk and gambler. His ghost is still said to loiter at the roadside, ready to terrify rich and poor alike.
