When the men came to their dinner she used to put her hand to her Tón and bring back a Glám of butter and throw it on the plate and say "Sin é an t-im breágh agus ith do sháith."Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
- One time a man was saving hay and it began to rain. He went into the house but his wife had not the dinner ready. He said why hadn't she the dinner ready and the woman said that she was waiting for him to go for the water as he was wet. The man said nothing but went out and got the water and came and threw it on top of the woman. Then he said "aren't you wet now and get the water"Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
