Identifier: Coll-97/CW90/7

Scope and Contents

Story entitled 'Turas eile' in which a father sends his three sons out on a journey and tells them not to return until they see water going up a slope. The brothers stop at several streams but it is not until they let their horses drink that the eldest brother realises that is what their father meant. He leaves the other two brothers not telling them that he has understood what their father meant and goes back to his father and tells him. The story has been scored through as if transcribed elsewhere.
