A long time ago there was a lot of cows on the Saltee Islands, and men used to go from Kilmore to milk them.
One day the men went in a boat to the island and they saw a little woman in a shell. The little woman used to milk the cows and make butter. The men told the little woman they would tell and she said "You may when you will think of it." They never thought of it until the day she died.
