The Kirkintilloch Burning Disaster in 1937 fulfilled the second part of the prophecy, when the bodies of ten victims were carried by rail to Achill.
These people had died in a fire in a 'bothy'. This term referred to the temporary accommodation provided for those who went to Scotland to pick potatoes. This was a long standing custom in Achill and it was almost always young people who spent their summers in Scotland.
Nowadays, most of the young people of Achill continue in school until they are 17 or 18, in one of the two post-primary schools.
