- Once upon a time there lived a woman named Bridget Dowd in Cummeen in the Co. Roscommon. Now this poor woman had only one cow. Every morning when she went to milk the cow she was milked. She thought it was someone that was stealing her milk. One night she stood up to watch. A while after the cow lying down, on comes a hedge - hog and lay down beside the cow's tits and began to suck the milk. Then the woman got a heavy stick and killed the hedge - hog, so after that her milk was safe.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
