Cures From Herbs

Cleggan, Co. Galway

Long ago people made cures for various illnesses from hers. The dandelion was a favourite cure for heart trouble and it was used also for colds. They were placed in water and left for a while.

The green leaves of the primrose were put to sores to cure them and ivy was also used for the same purpose.
