There are two forges in this parish one at Crecora Cross and the other on the
road-side at Greens Hills.
The one at Crecora is owned by Mr. Mulqueen, and the other one is owned by Mr. Toomey.
The forge is a tall black building, roofed with timber and felt. There is only one fire and this is worked by a bellows placed on a frame beside the fire. This bellows is the same shape as a hand bellows and worked by a large handle . Its door is an ordinary one and tradition states that "forge-water" is a great cure for chilblains.
There is no need for a sign-board outside the door you see a heap of iron and cast off horse-shoes
