a decade of the Rosary. He put the twine around the person's head and sent them home. When the headache was gone the man took off he twine.

The cure for a burn was to scrape a raw potato and put it with the burn. If a person sprained his foot the cure for it was to wash it in water that boiled potatoes. The cure the old people had for a cut was to get a feather and leave it on the cut. When a person had a sore throat they filled a stocking with coarse salt and heated it by the fire and put it around their neck. The cure for teethache was to catch a frog and leave his head on the tooth. The cure for a wart was to steal a bit of bacon from someone, to rub it on the wart and then hide it under a stone.
There was also cures at blessed wells. There is a bush in Leitra called the Blessed Bush. There is a well under this bush. Anyone who took a drink from this would be cured.
