Long ago there was a priest and a layman traveling together on fine Summer's evening. The layman was a friend of the priest.
As they were going along the valley the priest was looking towards the hight ground at the foot of the mountain. He asked the layman if he saw anything and the layman said he did not. hen the priest told him to look at such a place to see if could then see anything.
Then te man asked the priest what sis he see and he told him that he saw a great multitude of people armed with hurleys as if they were playing. Then the priest told him to move more closer to him, but he could not see.
At last he told him to stand right back of him nearly in his footsteps. The man sis as he was told and then he saw the great multitude of people and they appeared to be happy.
