  1. There was once a man living in Brackloon by the name of Tom Davin and it was said he had a cure. There was a man living near him and he had a very bad sore and nothing could cure it. One day he went to the man who had the cure and he blessed himself and said some prayers and he shook Holy water on it.
    It was getting better every day and in a week's time it was better.
    Martin Gannon, Shrule told me this story Paddy Gannon, Shrule.
