Friday for crosses,
Saturday is no day at all.

Travelling folk still visit our district but they do not lodge in the houses now as they did in former years.
About 30 years ago families of travelling folk used to come around to the houses of our district to beg alms from the people.
Some of them used to sell small articles such as, pins, needles, lace, shoe laces, ribbons, brooches, hair pins and religious objects.
The alms they used to accept from the people were mostly food such as, bread small quantities of tea, sugar and milk.
