27Westropp, T.J. "The Clare Gold Find." The Journal of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland Sixth 8.2 (1918): 185.
Westropp, as antiquarian and sleuth, wrote, " I was recently taken to the site of the Find by Mr W. Halpin, of Knocknegon, Newmarket-on-Fergus, and Messrs. Denis and Patrick O’Rorke, sons of the farmer at whose house the bulk of the early gold ornaments (found March 1854) were kept for safety for some time. The railway runs across the site, and the three traditions I found only differed as to which side of the line the discovery was made, or whether it was under the raised part of the metalled line."
