    Long ago there was a woman sick in Thrus Clieve and at twelve o clock in the night they sent for the priest to Carrigaholt.

    Long ago there was a woman sick in Thrus Clieve and at twelve oclock in the night they sent for the priest to Carrigaholt. At that time there were no lights. When the priest was going up Moyarta Hill the pony shied and suddenly two candles came one on each ear of the pony and gave light to him until he came near the house. When he was leaving the house again one of the people offered to go with him but he said "I have lights with me" but they did not understand what he ment. The lights stayed with him until he arrived at home.
