If you get a sting from a Dearg put a dead Dearg on the sting and it will get cured

If you get a sting from ants put on blue or a bit of soft clay
If there is a thorn in your hand or foot and you could not get it out if you get a fox's tongue and put it to it it will cure it
If you have a toothache warm bran and put it to your tooth and it will cure it
If you see wisp with a hen it is the sign of a death.
If you see cock and a hen fighting it is the sign of war.
