There was a man named Fionn Mac Cumhaill who lived in Kildare. One day he threw a stone from the Hill of Allen to the Hill of Knockaulin. The stone is to be seen there still and the marks of his five fingers are seen on it. There was another very strong man named Donnelly. One day he and Cooper were fighting. Donnelly killed Cooper and the footprints of their feet are seen leading down to the hollow where they fought.
