There are few 'cures' peculiar to the district. Those which the children know of seem to have been brought by parents or grandparents from various parts of the country.
One 'disease' however exists here of which I have never heard before. It sounds like 'min-fhéarach' but nobody I have asked can spell it. The patient rapidly loses weight, energy and appetite until the cure is obtained from a woman (Mrs. Sammon) who lives in Kilcullen.
