Story
One day a man was coming down Hasty's Glen. He had a donkey and two creels of fish.
He saw a dead fox by the wayside. He lifted it and he put it in to one of the creels. He did not look at the creels till he was near Creeslough. He looked round and he saw that the creels were empty and the fox was running away up the hill, The fox pretended he was dead and then he eat the fish.
Nora McGinley, Creeslough.
This story was told to me by Bernard McGinley, Creeslough, aged 72 years.
