There was once a man in Galway and he used to have horses going from Galway to any place on hire. His name was John Greaney and he used to get a lot of work. There was a man in Lisdonagh and he had a great horse and his name was Mr. Nolan. He told John Greaney to go half way between Tuam and Galway and he himself would leave Galway and he would race him to Tuam. When the race was over Mr. Nolan won it.
