Three miles from Turlough School there is a small village called Oughtmama. A half a mile from the village up near a mounts there are seven churches.
At the base of the church it is said there is some gold. A man named Patrick Maher went looking for it. He kept digging until at last his spade struck by gold. It was a bar of gold; after a while he got 5 more bars. He got one big bar. He hid them and went home. Next morning he went up to get the gold but there were only six bars of the metal.
