I know a man by the name of Jim Flynn who lives in Clonmore, Bree, Co Wexford.

One day he went out to the churchyard in Clonmore to cut boughs, an' while he was cutting a bough fell on his leg an' hurted it.
He has a lame leg to this day. It is said that it is not right to have anything to do with trees in a churchyard.
