  1. Castle-Taylor is about two miles from here. Once there lived a man there and a small man appeared to him. He told him to go to a rock and he would find a pot of gold. The rock belonged to Pat Shiel. He told him to bring another man. The next night he went without the man he did not get the gold. The next night he brought another man but not the right man. The wind rose and he had to go home without the gold. He never got it after that.
