    There was a highwayman in this district long ago and he had a lot of gold.

    Here is a new version of a short tale given already in Cuid 1 or 11.
    "There was a highwayman in this district long ago and he had a lot of gold. He was caught over in England in the end and tried and sentenced to death. When he was going to be hanged he said "All the gold I ever got is in Upper Connello in Gratten Leenane and the wheel of the car is rolling over it and wearing down to it"
    (James Kennedy, Ballymacamore, Croom, 50)
    Gratten Leenane = Gort an Lionain, already given as an Lionan or as geata an lionain. (In Kilmacow, Croom)
