  1. Stories
    Long ago there were people liv-
    ing in Blacknock, near Kilmeaden,
    about seven miles from Waterford,
    and they had a good milking cow,
    and she died.
    So one day, a cow, and a calf, came to them, and this cow was a
    good milking cow.
    Any vessel that would be put under
    her, she would fill it.
    So one day, the servant brought out, a sieve, and the cow could not fill it,
    but the servant kept on milking her.
    So the cow and calf bawled, and
    ran down the field, and were never
    heard of again.
    There is a place in Blacknock
    "called the cow's track", where the
    footsteps of the cow and the three
    holes of the milking stool, are still
    to be seen there.
