Saltee Islands.

At the north end of the Saltee Islands there is a collection of rocks and soil called the Devils Bit. The Devil carried this bit of soil from Tipperary, because St. Patrick chased him out of Ireland, he picked up a mouthful of Tipperary, and kept it in his mouth until he came to the sea. The devil ran through Kilmore with a fearful rattling of chains in the middle of the night, and when he came to the sea at Kilmore Quay he started to swim and at the Saltee Islands he threw the bit out of his mouth. And ever since that spot is called The Devils Bit.
Told by Mr. J. Furlong. Ballyharty,Co. Wexford
