When St Brigits Day comes everyone makes a cross of timber...

When St Brigits Day comes everyone makes a cross of timber and put in the rafter. When St Patricks Day comes everyone wears a shamrock. The people visit St Colman's well, this well is far off in the mountain, it is between two mountains on the way to Tubber. Where this (noun) well is situated is called Kilala. St Colman spent many years there as a hermit and he worked many miracals. St John's Day comes on the twenty ninth of June and most of the people light a bon fire.
