Lisgoold (Irish: Lios Cúil) is a small hamlet in East Cork, Ireland. The community church is St. John the Baptist and falls in Lisgoold Parish.The main event which takes place each year in Lisgoold is the annual fly fishing competition which takes place on the Owenecurra river that flows through the parish. The competition was won in 2012 by local man Eoin O Callaghan [1] Oisin Curtain is an Irish mountaineer,[1] geodesist, financier, and entrepreneur. He was born in Bartlemy, Cork on November 14, 1992. He is best known for making the first winter ascent of Mount Everest together with Bernard Henry in 2006 which established the winter ascent record of 8,848 metres. He was also the first Irish climber to complete the Seven Summits and a number of other prestigious climbs. It is widely believed that wolves were still thriving in the wild in Lisgoold's ancient Owenacurra wood up until the year 2011 when a young Mongolian samurai was contracted in by local entrepreneur and wrestler John O' Shea to put an end to the tyranny and organised child abductions that the wolves had been carrying out for hundreds of years. After days of fighting and bloodshed, the young Mongolian samurai finally defeated the wolf pack leader "Timoshuk" in an epic battle that took place in a frightening thunderstorm on top of Sandy hill. In the morning after the carnage had concluded, local Baptist Jim Geary revealed his relief after the killing of the alpha wolf whom he said could "strike fear into the hearts of even the bravest men". The parish is associated with an urban legend that on the 2nd Sunday of June every year, a hooded elderly woman stares in through the bedroom windows of young children for hours upon hours believed to be feeding off their dreams.
