Many years ago, on the shore at Moville in Co. Donegal, a number of young men were strolling about. It was a lovely evening in summer. After a time one of the men saw a ship with big white sails, sailing at some distance out from the shore.
The ship seemed rather old fashioned and strange-looking. The man who saw it called the attention of the other men to it, but only one of them could see it. The other men only laughed and said they saw nothing. But the two men who saw the strange-looking ship said they would go out to see it. So they got a boat and set out towards the ship but when they drew near it, it disappeared.
