- There are many old cures which are used still. But doctors nowaday are doing away with them for they are able to make cures which will keep people alive longer than they would, if there were no doctors.There are many sicknesses which are cured by water from wells. There is a well in the well-meadow Swords where people with sore-eyes have visited and by washing their eyes in it have been cured.The people in the east of Ireland do not use the old cures they use the doctor's cures. Some of the people in the west use the old cures still.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
