Once there lived in the of Clifden a woman. Thiswoman was my great grandmother. She had two horses and she left them in a field until morning for that morning was the fair morning. She went out in the moonlight to see the horses. Suddenly two jockeys jumped up on the horses and sped away like lightning. In the morning the two
horses were left back tired and weary.
