In Cromwell's time an underground passage was made from Castletown to Ballyfin, into which the monks and priests and Monks had to go for safety and bring with them the gold belonging to the Church. To-day we learn that three men shall enter this underground passage in search of the gold belonging to the church. They are to succeed, but it is predicted that one man is to loose his life.
