- No one likes a woman that is not churched to go into their house as she is supposed to bring bad luck. If a man sat three times under a bow shaped briar, he would be able to colour the cards. If a man was a good gambler the people say “He sat under a briar.”

- If you kill a hare on May day you will have bad luck for the year. If you carry a deck of cards to Mass in your pocket, you will have good luck when playing cards for the rest of the year. When an ass brays it is a sign a tinker is dead.
