  1. In Ballyboran the district where I live there is a man named William Ward who has a cure for warts. He is a middle age man. He lives on the main road between Creeve and Baylin. He gets three straws and with them he makes the sign of the cross over the warts. He also says some prayers. Afterwards he buries the straws. After some time the warts disappear.
