A good cure for a horse when he takes a cough is to get the roots of "dockens" and boil them and give the horse a drink of the juice. There is an old man in this parish and he always drank a cupful of the juice whenever he took a cough and he was cured. He is over eighty years and he is still able to go to Carndonagh with his horse and cart every Monday.
