There was once a man and his name was Turk and he lived in Shrule. He was very rich and he had a lot of stock and land. He had very bad luck during his life. He lost all his stock and money and the land was no good. He had two sons and when he died he left a curse on the mill and every night there are seen three lights two for his sons and one for himself.
