I heard this old prayer from my father. He lives in Castle-cool. He was born in Brandra. He is a labourer. He spent his early days in Watercastle. He heard this prayer from Pat Dowlng who was his grandfather. He heard it about forty years ago. The person was about 50 years of age about then. That person was living in a place called Graceswood road or better still Pat Dowling's lane. I wrote this prayer on the 5th October 193X.
