There was a man living in Tullygarvan one time whose name was Tommy Nagle R.I.P. One day he was in the bog cutting turf, and he saw a lizard. He had heard that if you licked the lizard you could cure any person that's suffering from a burn. He took up the lizard, and he licked it. After that he cured many people, and the people were sorry when he died.
