- Some people have the cure of the mumps. A person whose father's name and mother's maiden name are the same has the cure of the mumps. For instance Mr Lawrence McGowan of Drummonds Gurteen P.O., Manorhamilton has this cure. This man is living in Glencar. The mumps are taken in the throat. If the mumps are not cured the person that has them would be choked.
Mr Lawrence McGowan puts the mare's halter on the patient's throat and leads them to the three mearing water. Just where the water meets he stoops down and lifts up a drop of water in his hand. He gives them three drops to drink. He takes off the halter and the sick person goes home.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
