    Table. From that and when he would come to the
    town it would shake. Once when he came they
    were eating their breakfast and he ordered something
    to eat and they gave it to him. There he went to
    Limerick and the same thing happened. No one
    knows how he ended up.

  2. Once upon a time there was a man who lived
    in the townland of derryknockrane. One day he
    was reaping a field of oats when a very strong
    breeze came along and was scattering his oats
    about. the man got very vexed and he flung the
    hook out of his had against the breeze that was
    blowing saying, "Our side for it". Some time after
    he was going to a fair in Tubbercurry and we went
    into a house on the side of the road to rest himself.
    the man of the house gave him great welcome
    and called him in his name. the man (of the
    house) wondered greatly when he saw that the man
    of the house knew him and said "How is it that
    you know me and I don't know you" The man
    asked him did he remember the day when he
    flung the hook at the breeze. He said he did well.
