SYMPTOMS OF SEPSIS: The daughter of a lady who died recently in Cavan General Hospital said “Sepsis does not discriminate and does not only come from a cut. It can come from surgery, pneumonia, chest infection, even a urinary tract infection. “Early intervention is paramount. Symptoms include a high or low temperature, confusion, fast heartbeat, or failure to pass urine within a 12-hour period. If anyone is showing these symptoms, you need to ask the question about sepsis and please, please get checked out immediately.”

“Long ago there was a man living in Tarbert whose name was John Lysed.”

Long ago there was a man living in Tarbert whose name was John Lysed. He was working with a farmers in that parish. The man whom he was working for was a Protestant, and he was a very good man. John Lysed was very fond of drink and one day he went to a fair in Listowel with his master. They both went in to a public house and they started drinking. John Lysed had no money and he saw seven and six on the counter. He took the seven and six and he did not intend to pay it back. Soon afterwards the man died, and he was not long dead when the people of the place said he was seen. There was a priest at home from America that time and he heard the story. One night he was passing the way and he saw him. He then asked him what was his trouble. The man told him that he was doing penance for seven and six that he carried in Listowel. The priest paid the money and the man was never seen after.

“Long ago tailors used to travel from house to house mending and making clothes, as the case may be.”

Long ago tailors used to travel from house to house mending and making clothes, as the case may be. One may-Eve one of these little tailors put up for the night at a cottage near Duagh, wherein lived an old hag of a woman. After supper, the tailor turned in and slept like a Trojan till about 4 a-m. He pricked his ears when he heard the old hag shuffling about in a room nearby, and before he knew what was happening, she issued from her room clad in a hideous black cloak which surely belonged, or came from his Satanic Majesty. She moved over to the settle-bed to make sure our friend was in Slumberland. Being sure of this, she started operations, she took a box of ointment from behind a rafter and signed herself with the left hand on the forehead. When she replaced the box She assumed the form of a hare and show a clear pair of heels out of the door. The tailor at once made up his mind that she would have a companion this fine May morning. So going through the same ablutions he took the form of a hare and followed after his post. The pursued and pursuer kept up the pace uphill and down dale till they arrived in a clearing in a wood. The tailor kept a safe distance from his companion and soon saw her joining other hares thousands of which were gathered in the clearing. The next thing he saw was a horseman riding in among them then he spoke and said: "I cannot transmit any power to you this morning as there is an enemy amongst us". When he had finished his discourse they went away but the tailor won the race home and he nibbed off the sign hid the box, and hopped into bed. Soon after the other arrived but could not find the box to nib off the sign with it. She charged the tailor with the theft and she said "if sunrise finds me in the form of a hare I shall remain you for 12 months. So he yielded up the box and she became the old hag once more. That year there was no butter carried in this country and the women were deprived of their witchery through the intervention of a little tailor.
