Men and boys go out on Saint Stephen's day to hunt the wren. They kill a wren put him on the top of a stick and if you did not give them some money they would bury the wren outside your door.
This is the song that is sung,
The Wren, the wren the king of all birds, on Saint Stephen's day she was caught in the furze Although she is little her family is great, rise up landlady and give us a treat" If the treat be small it will not agree with the boys at all. "So up with the kettle and down with the pan give us our ransom and let us be gone." Long ago they used to drink the money but now they divide it evenly between them.
