There were twelve lime-kilns in a rour in "Cathair na mBroc" once. These kilns belonged to twelve brothers and they called themselves the "Sheridan Brothers" They did a very good trade as the lime they made was very good and the people at that time white-washed houses inside and outside. The people around the place sold a lot of turf to these men. Often big shops in Galway sent messengers for the bags of this lime. When the landlord heard they were making as they were he raised their rent so high that they got broke and worked no more at the lime
