- Once upon a time James Flynn of Cummeen Elphin went cutting a lone - bush for fire wood. After he striking the third stroke of the hatchet on the bush, he heard three roars at the foot of the bush Then he knew that it wasn't right to cut the bush so he went away.
After a while another man named Thomas Connaughton who knew nothing about the roars cut the bush. He got a stob of a thorn off one of the brambles. Tom past no heed on the stob as it was very small. After a while it swelled and turned to blood poison and he nearly died.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
