Long ago there was a woman living in Inchenteskin. She was near a river one May day morning and she saw smoke out of a chimney of a house, and she stirring the water with a stick and she was saying "Thats man's butter to me" There was a boy passing by and he beard her and he said "half of it to me: when the boy's mother made the churn. she had half of the other man's butter with her own. So the boy told his mother the story and they told the priest so the other man got back his own butter again.
