… When the Fenians had risen and come out the following morning, Fin approached Brown, Black and Grey and said, “Do you have anything to relate from the watch last night.”
So, the three newcomers told their respective stories and at the end of their tale Brown and Black handed Fin the knife and cup which they had retrieved.
“You have done great work,” said Fin, “we are sure to have the best eating and drinking from now on,” then turning to Grey he said, “the fate of the old hag, though, nags at me, that third young giant may well return and visit trouble on us all.”
For twelve months after Fin Mac Coll and the Fenians of Erin hunted for sport alone and at the end of that time, Brown, Black and Grey went their way.
On a day, soon after, a large Red Man approached the hunt and requested of Fin twelve months service.
“And what wages do you ask?” said Fin to the Red Man.
“No wages but this,” said the Red Man, “if I die before that time is out I shall be buried on the Isle of Light.”
