Ringwood was the last of an Anglo-Irish family that had played the devil in County Clare for three centuries. At last the family estates vanished and Ringwood lived on a few hundred a year of his own. He and his friend, Bates, the same sort of man, roamed around the countryside hunting and pursuing young women. One day Ringwood followed Bates to a village called Knockderry. He saw a beautiful girl driving cows along the road. He was about to go after her when an even more beautiful young woman went by on a horse. He immediately set about pursuing her. The pursuit was easy. She invited him into her house although her dog whined and tried to prevent it. She said "You are of the Saxon." He said his people had come to Ireland in 1629 but she still considered him an enemy. Suddenly they embraced and he lost consciousness. When he awoke he discovered that he ha been turned into a dog like his friend, Bates, who had tried to warn him.
