About 400 years to the south of the Sonnagh School there is a bush on the roadside known as Phelim's Bush. This bush at first was growing about 500 yards father back to the west. Tradition rolls as that the bush was abased by cutting some of its branches vikat a well which stored near was interfered with + the following morning the bush had moved to the roadside. If a bunch happenes to be broken no blossoms would come on the side of the following year. There is a cure for Warts attached to it. You have to come three Sunday mornings before sunrise walk round the bush three times, wash the warts with water from the stream running behind it, then tie a piece to wittier immediately. Many local inhabitants were cured of warts in this wat. God help the man caught cutting branches of this bush or interfering with it in any way.
