  1. There was a man living in Cloonluane. He had twin boys. They were six years old. One day two men came from Inishturk to buy a horse from this man.
    They bought the horse. The twins were so fond of the horse that they had to go with the horse.
    The two men promised to bring them home again but they never brought them.
    One Sunday the twins took a boat and rowed all the way home. They were at home when the people were going to late mass.
    The distance from Inishturk to Renvyle is nine miles.
