Chickweed: The Nutritive Star

“In olden times the people had great belief in the power of herbs for curing diseases. While the herb was being applied they always chanted some old rhyme. When one gets a sprained ankle he pulls chickweed and roasts it on red coals and then applies it to the ankle. I believe this old cure never fails.”

Máire Nic Loclainn, County Donegal, The Schools’ Collection, 1930’s
