A long time ago a man was fishing on a lake in the mountains of Connemara. As he was fishing he saw something coming (coming)towards him from the lake. After a while he ran away. After a lovely sea horse came up out of the lake. the man went down to the brink of the lake and he caught the horse. He kept him for a long time working him under a cart every day. One night about twelve a clock the horse ran away. The next day another man saw the same horse
in the lake.
