- Counting Eggs etc.
Eggs are counted in threes. Three eggs are taken in each hand when counting. Eggs are reckoned in hundreds, 120 eggs make a hundred.
Cabbage plants are also reckoned in hundreds. 120 plants make a hundred.
When a large number of sheep have to be counted they are driven slowly, one by one, out a narrow gap. A man stands outside the gap with a large number of small pebbles or haws or other small objects, near him. As eachsheep passes out the gap he puts one of the small objects in the cap or hat. When all the sheep had passed out the number of objects in the hat or cap was counted.Tras-scríofa ag duine dár meitheal tras-scríbhneoirí deonacha.
