About three miles from here there is a place called Muckinish Castle, where there is gold hidden. There is a big case in it and underneath that castle the gold is hidden. No body has ever tried to get it, because it would be great trouble to knock the castle. There are fairies in the place as well, and people think it would not be safe to go looking for it. There is a house beside it.
The castle is beside the sea and can be seen from the church. Nobody knows who left the gold there.
