  1. Warts: 1. If you meet a black snail unexpectedly rub him to the wart and put him on a whitethorn bush to decay while he is withering the wart will be disappearing.
    2. Get nine straws. Rub them to the warts for 9 days and put them in a place to rot. When they are rotten the wart will disappear. (This revision of the cure given by a Protestant lady Anne Smith, Drumcoula, Ballinamore)
