in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.
If you had a head-ache and drink a cup of strong tea it would go.
A cure for a sore throat is a hot drink of black currant jam with sugar and hot water also honey.

Some years ago there lived in the Co. Meath in a place called Cappagh, not far from the railway and canal a man who dreamt about money. He was to get it under this certain bush which is called the Bush of Baile Éireac dreamt about it so many times that it tempted him to go and dig for it.
The first night he went he got afraid and left it until the next night and at last after the sixth night he succeeded in finding a good crock of gold and became the wealthiest man in Cappagh. The bush and hole are to be seen yet, but the gold is gone.
