People used to make crosses of green ribbon long ago for St Patricks These crosses were pinned on the right shoulder, and every girl used to make and wear them. It was a custom to go out on May Eve, and draw a sheet along the field of a neighbour and gather up the dew, and then squeeze it into a bucket.
By this they carried their neighbours crops for the year. Another custom on May Eve is to go around and shake holy water on everything A stone brought St Benjamins well in Tullyease is said to cure anything If it was thrown against the storm, it would calm the storm
