First the rushes are pulled out of a bog and then they are brought into the house and they are put over the fire for a few days to dry. After that they are peeled. Then they are melt beef suet in a hot iron vessel and the melted suet is called tallow. They sip the rushes into it and then they are left to cool and then tallow gets hard then they can stand on a candle stick.
That is the light our grandmothers and great-grandmothers used have on the long winter night at their spinning wheel.
