There was a very rich man in Turlough and he had three pots of gold. He told the people that he would divide two pots among his friends and that he would bury the third pot and he said he would tell three people where he hid it. If they could bring it up they could have it for themselves. He had it buried in a puddle of water The three people he told got three divers and they dived down and they could see the pot of gold but they could not get to it as there was a witch minding it
