A Story About Churning

Barnaderg, Co. Galway

There was once a man with a lot of cows. His wife was churning and she could not make any butter. A wise man was called for and he asked for a roll of butter and told the woman to send the cat outside with Barnaderg tail first and walk around the churn 3 times. Other things needed to be done before he was happy. After doing everything she was asked she looked in the churn and it was full of butter.
