- Thrush Told by Mr Burns, Butcher, Cobh Aged 66
A grandson of mine got the Thrush in Carrigtwohill. His mother told me not to stop till I saw a black faced goat and to take a bit off his ear and bring it to her. I travelled a deal til I spied one and asked the woman who owned it to let me take a little bit of his ear for a halfcrown. "Yerra, cut the head of him" says she, "he's an old puck anyway." I quickly snipped a piece of his ear about an inch. Brought it home and laid it on the child's throat. He was cured and is a fine healthy young man today.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
