  1. Cure for worm tail in cows' tail but garlic in small bits, bruise together, mix with tobacco and put in a cloth and tie around cow's tail. Would also cure a horse that has worms, chickens with pip, people boil it in milk, strain and drink. Given to ch[ildre]n with worms over 3 years.

    In County Clare (north) people used not make a churn on Friday so that the cattle would not get Black Quarter.
