    A kindhearted woman lived in Kilballyowen.

    A kindhearted woman lived in Kilballyowen. Unknown to her husband she gave all their wheat away in charity. One day her husband asked her for the key of the barn where the wheat was kept. She gave it to him. She being afraid that he would kill her wished that the ground would open up and swallow her. When he opened the barn door the wheat fell out as there was not room enough for it in the barn. This was God's reward for her charity.
