Story Of The "Darah-dhaol".

The darahdhaol is a sort of flat jet-black worm, frequently seen in gardens, where potatoes are pitted.
The smell from him is like that of apples. Tradition says that if you kill him with your right thumb, the seven deadly sins will be forgiven you. When our Lord was escaping one day from the Jews, the darahdhaol put up his tail and said. "'Twas this way he went". Ever since the tail of this worm is turned up. He was previously a source of terror to all children who recognised him.
