    It is said the Danes could make Poteen from heather.

    It is said the Danes could make Poteen from heather. The Irish wanted to learn the secret from a Father + Son. (Danes) Said the Father if you kill my son I'll tell you. They did so. Now, said he, you may kill me too. They did so. The father was afraid the son might divulge the secret recipe.
    People say the Irish first learnt how to grow grain from the Danes too.
