Once upon a time a crowd of men were gathered at Rosnakill and they were talking about where they would build a church.

Once upon a time, a crowd of men were gathered at Rossnakill and they were talking about where they would build a Church. One man thought of a plan and said to the others to lade two donkeys with clay and let them to loose and wherever they would get them in the morning, thats where they would build the Church.
So they did so and the two donkeys were found in a field close to the road in the morning and that was where the Church was built.
