- There was a poor man and his wife living in the district of Clifden. They had two children two boys. They dearly loved each other. One day the childrens' mother died and the poor man got married again. After a short time a famine came over the country. The farmer's wife said to her husband "We will bring the children to Capula wood a mile from Clifden."
