Cistí Óir i bhFolac
(Written down by Antony McFadden, Umurafad whose grandfather told him this story.)
Once there were two men who were working for the King of England. The King had crocks of gold, and the men planned and stole one of them.
They took it with them to Doe Castle, where they hid it on the Bishop's Island out in Sheephaven Bay near the Castle.
It is said that there is a secret passage under the sea from the Castle to the Bishop's Island, and that the crock of gold is still hidden there.
