The Life of St Féchín of Fore (Author: [unknown])

section 43

At another time Féchín was in his cell praying, when he heard the noise of the children hurling on the green beside the cell, and they disturbed Féchín at his devotions. Says Féchín: ‘I permit you to go and be drowned in the lake, and your souls will be free (to ascend) to heaven.’ Then the children went into the lake, and they were drowned and they obtained a reward for their souls. Wherefore from them Loch Macraide ‘Children's Lake’ is (so called) for ever; and God's name and Féchín's were magnified thereby.51
