“Old shoes are thrown after a new-married couple for luck...”
Old shoes are thrown after a new-married couple for luck, for luck, either when they are leaving the church or going on their honey-moon.If you went to see a new-born baby, you should spit on it for luck. You should also give it a bit of silver. A mother is never left alone, till the baby is baptised. Relatives of the dead person - and namesakes of his, always remove a corpse from the house, from the church, and into the grave-yard. No relative should ever dig a grave.The screws of a coffin are unscrewed when a coffin is lowered into the grave (Only in Kerry)By stealing a coal of fire- on May-day the produce of the butter of that house goes to the stealer.
