In Kilmore in the year of the famine a mad dog passed by a house, as he passed by a pig, he bit him and this pig went mad also. The owner of this pig was not so poor. He got up on the pig sty and he stuck the pig with a fork, and took him to the bog where he buried him. When the poorer people heard of this they went to the bog and dug up the pig and eat him.
