”Irish Cures, Mystics Charms & Superstitions” by Lady Wilde

Auguries and prophecies of coming fate may also be obtained from the flight of birds, the motion of the winds, from sneezing, dreams, lots, and the signs from a verse of the Psalter or Gospels. The peasantry attach great importance to the first verses of St. John’s Gospel, and maintain that when the cock crows in the morning he is repeating these verses (from the 1st to the 14th), and if we understood the language of the animals and birds, we could often hear them quoting these same verses.

A charm against sickness is an armlet worn round the neck, enclosing a piece of paper, on which is written the first three verses of St. John’s Gospel.

Omens That Forbode Evil

It is unlucky to meet a cat, a dog, or a old woman, when going out first in the morning: but unlucky above all is to meet a woman with red hair the first thing in the morning when going on a journey, for her presence brings ill luck and certain evil.

Omens That Forbode Evil

It is unlucky to pass under a hempen rope; the person who does so will die a violent death, or is fated to commit an evil act in afterlife, so it is decreed.

Omens That Forbode Evil

To take away a lighted sod on May days or churning days; for fire is the most sacred of all things, and you take away the blessing from the house along with it.

Maybe Rouge, The author of this book was not a Red Head, and was jealous of them.

I was wondering this same question myself.

May be that is why they say the "Luck of the Irish", because they were all unlucky. biggrin.gif
