Alex asked in wonder how far was he going to carry the bag and he said he was bringing it hom to Shrataggle - eighteen miles. They set off and even though Alex was a good lively walker, it took him all his time to keep up with O Malley. He rested his load once at the top of Ceíde (midway between Belderrig and Ballycastle) and this was the only rest he gave himself till he parted with Alex at Belderrig. He went out between the two thanneys(?) then making for home.
