    one of the forts. One night an old man said to his son go and dig every bit of the field, and you could get a treasure. The next day the boy set to work and dug but he found nothin. Then his father told him to sew some seed, and when it grew up it was the most wonderful ever was seen in Ireland. There was a bag of seed on every blade of corn and that was the treasure he found.
