    who brought me to the house of Mr. Doody who lived in an isolated place near Caher Village. A remnant of Irish seemed at that time to have lingered in the locality and it seemed to be a district rich in folklore.

    Here is the account of "Bruidhean Móna Mhuilinn" which to my mind is an account of a famous faction fight. Mr. McCarthy has in all probability given an account of it already to the folklore society. In case he has not I now respectfully forward the same.

  2. Ar maidin go moch Dia h-Aoine,
    Tháinig a chunntas cruinn chúghainn;
    Ná leogfadh óg ná críona
    D'ár mbuidhin teacht níos mó;
    Domhnach ná lá saoire.
    Ná na maribh do chur sa chill ann
    Nó go raghadh na géaga i gcill dóibh ? i ngeimheall (perhaps)
    Agus ísbirt ar beódhaibh.

    Agus ba shuarach é a ngníomh.
    Muiris bacach níor dhíon leis tuama ?
    Thos. Baxter ag caitheamh fuail uaidh;
    Ag éisteacht lé lamhach mór
    'S lé fuaim speal 's claidheamh
    NB.
    I do not clearly understand points where I have note of Interrogation (?)
