A Story about St, Patrick
One day while St. Patrick was in Ballinacrae outside the town of Waterford a chieftain invited him to a feast. The chieftain wanted to make game of him so he roasted a greyhound for him. The chieftain was going to make a jeer of St. Patrick when he would eat a dog. When St Patrick came into the house he sat down and blessed himself. The greyhound suddenly jumped up and ran out through the door. Then St Patrick said that from that day forward Balllinacrae would never be without a fool or a "Oinseac."
