  1. Once upon a time there was a farmer milking a cow late at night A little man appeared to him and asked him for a little drop of milk The man gave him the milk. The little man told him you dig uner that turf of wishes you will get a crock of gol which is buried there. The farmer thought it was too late to dig besides the night was so dark. So he got a goats ceangal and he left it lying in the tuft of rushes The next morning he got up early and procured a spade and went but to dig the treasure but to his surprise when he went to the field he saw that there was a ceangal on every tuft of wishes in the field So the man had to go home without the treasure and the treasure remains there until this day
