On a mountain called "Sliabh a Túrlach" there is a pot of gold supposed to be hidden in a big cliff. A few years ago two men who had heard about the gold got two iron bars, and shovels and began to dig for it.
The men were digging for many months but they could not find anything. One day as they were digging one of them heard a great noise, and they got an awful fright.
The two men ran home for their lives and nobody ever tried to get the gold since. The rabbits have their burrows in the pit now.
