After a while the man asked the girl to marry him. The girl said she would marry him. Some time after they were married, and they lived in Bonniconlon.
About four or five years there were three children in it. One day O'Dowd went to Ballina. When he was going to Ballina he hid in a stack of oats.
One child saw him hiding the shawl and he told his mother about it. She went out and found the shawl. The she brought the children down to the sea them into rocks. The rocks are there yet.
