Told by Patrick Doherty Grangemore
Hidden Treasure
A man was working on the side of a a road digging sods. He dig the third sod and heard money gingling.
A woman appeared to him and told him that if he came on the third night, he would get a crock of gold.
He went home, and told three men to go to the place three nights after. They went and got the crock of gold.
A week later all three were dead.
