- About fifty years ago a man named Jack O'Neill went to a field to get a sack of grass for his pigs. While he was gathering the grass, he saw a fairy. He caught it and put it into the sack.On his way home he met another fairy, who shouted; "where are you", and the fairy in the (in (the) sack said; "I am here in a sack on Jack O'Neill's back".The man threw the sack on the ground and ran home.Another day the same man was walking through the fields and he met a leipreacan which he thought was a little boy. He spoke to him and told him that he was (a) very small to be out in the fields alone. The leipreacan told him to look behind him and he would see a smaller fellow. The man did so but he could see nothing and when he turned round the leipreacan disappeared.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
