Irish Folk Medicine: Colours and Blood

Continuation of Irish Folk Medicine: Transference Cures.


Colours are important in the practice of folk medicine. We all know of the virtues of red flannel. It is widely used to relieve backache. It may also be used to treat whooping cough. In this case it is applied to the chest of the sufferer; and, to have the full effect, it should be put on by the godfather of the patient. A piece of red thread may be tied around a sprain. This is especially useful if nine knots are tied on the thread. Some of you will have seen pieces of red cloth tied on the tails of cattle. This is done to protect them against dangerous fairies or against the evil eye, or against elf shot. Blackleg may be prevented by putting a stitch of red thread through the dewlap of the animal and leaving it in position. In Indo-European mythology red is a colour which resists or expels demons, and clearly these practices are part of this belief.

Yellow is also an important colour, and the use of yellow things to treat jaundice is widespread. The important thing to realise is that jaundice is a dramatic symptom, and in the great majority of cases it clears up satisfactorily. There is a shrewd distinction between the black jaundice which is not curable – it may be due to cancer of the pancreas – and the yellow jaundice which is curable. There is an old legend that if a jaundiced patient sees a yellowhammer, the bird will die and the patient will get better. In Sweden a roasted yellowhammer is eaten by the patient. Here all sorts of yellow flowers are used. Charlock, buttercups, corn marigold and the flowers of the yellow iris. Official medicine also used yellow flowers until the end of the eighteenth century, but, in addition, the patient was also given an emetic and was also purged, bled, and sweated. These measures were most uncomfortable, and probably made the patient worse. This heroic treatment was based on the theory that jaundice was due to obstruction of something somewhere, and the treatment was designed to relieve all obstructions. Here I would include the use of yellow flowers to treat liver fluke infestation in sheep. In addition to the others, yellow wall flowers, and the yellow head of the buachallan may be used. 

Blood is also used in folk medicine, and is another example of pre-christian magic medicine. The best known form of this is the use of Keogh’s blood for treatment of the shingles. A family named Keogh living near Two Mile House, Co. Kildare has this cure, which consists of rubbing some of the blood of the healer on the blisters. People come from all the neighbouring counties to have this cure made.

I have heard of a patient who was admitted to the Co. Hospital in Castlebar to have an infected arm amputated. Whilst there he was told of a woman who had the cure, so he left the hospital and went to her in the mountains of West Mayo. The lady was eighty years old, and said she was too old to make the cure but he persuaded her to try. She took some blood from her arm, mixed it with unsalted butter and dressed the hand with it. The hand healed quickly.

In a primitive society, blood would be thought of as the seat of life. The use of blood was forbidden in the Anglo-Saxon Penitentials. The intention may have been, in the beginning, that the healer shared some of his own life with the sufferer and in this way restored him to health. ‘

Emigration and Education Statistics, 1931, Co. Kildare


Kildare an inland county in the province of Leinster, is bounded on the north by county Meath, on the east by counties Dublin and Wicklow, on the south by county Carlow and on the west by Offaly (King’s county) and county Westmeath. Its greatest length from north to south is 42 miles and its greatest breadth from east to west is 26 miles.


The name of the county and of the town is derived from a little church called Cill-Dara (the Church of the Oak) built under an oak tree at the end of the fifth century by Saint Bridget. This church grew into a large religious establishment which flourished for many years afterwards. The ancient territory called Hy-Faelen comprised the baronies of Salt, Ikeathy and Oughterany, Clane and part of the baronies of Naas and Connell. This formed the original territory of the O’Byrnes, who, however in the twelfth century were driven into the mountain fastness of Wicklow. A great part of the south of the county was anciently called Hy-Murray, the original territory of the O’Tooles who were, like the O’Byrne’s, driven over the border to Wicklow by the Anglo-Normans in the 12th century. Offaly was in the north west and Leix running in to Queen’s county in the west. The plain of the Liffey was anciently called Lifé or Moy Lifé, which gave its present name to the river whose old name was Rurthach. There were in ancient times three Royal Residences in the county, one near the town of Naas, one on the hill of Knockaulin, near Kilcullen and the most famous one on the hill of Allen, five miles north of Kildare. This was the residence of Finn MacCumhal, the greatest of all Irish heroes. The forts at Ardskull and Mullaghnast were the residences of Kings or Chiefs.


Kildare is the most level of all the Irish counties, the only mountains of any height being on the borders of Wicklow. A range of hills to the north west of the town of Kildare, called the Red Hills or Dunmurry Hills is terminated by the Hill of Allen (676’), a landmark conspicuous by a tall pillar erected on its summit and giving its name to the Bog of Allen. Knockaulin (600’) near Old Kilcullen is remarkable for its antiquities. The Bog of Allen occupies a considerable portion of the county towards the west and north-west.

Between the towns of Kildare and Newbridge lies the undulating plain of the Curragh, six miles long and two broad and containing 4,858 acres. Horse racing has taken place here from time immemorial. There is a large permanent military camp, the ground being suitable for training and evolutions. There are several forts or raths scattered over the plain.

The Rivers are the Liffey which rises in county Wicklow and flows into Kildare near Ballymore-Eustace, forming near the border the beautiful falls of Poulaphuca; and shortly before it enters county Dublin, it forms another pretty waterfall called the Salmon Leap, near Leixlip. The Boyne rises near Carbury Hill in the north west and first flows through this county before it forms the boundary for 3 ½ miles between it and Laois (Queen’s) county, and then for 7 ½ miles with Meath county, through which it flows for the rest of its course to the sea. It is not generally known that in its course the Boyne is crossed as well by those coming to Dublin from the West of Ireland as well as those coming from the north, for it runs across the Midland Great Western main line between Moyvalley and the Hill of Down train stations. The Barrow first forms the boundary with Laois (Queen’s) county for a mile; next runs two miles through Kildare; and then makes the boundary with Laois for 7 ½ miles, again runs through Kildare for 6 miles and forms once more the boundary of Laois for 7 ½ miles before it finally leaves the county Kildare. The Rye Water, which flows through the Duke of Leinster’s demesne, joins the Liffey at Leixlip. Small tributaries of the Barrow are Figile, the Funery, the Greese and the Lerr. The Blackwater and the Garr join the Barrow.

Families and Houses in 1926

The number of families in the county was 9,787 the average number in each family being 4.6. The number of inhabited houses was 11,910, showing an average of 4.9 persons to each house. The special inhabitants of public institutions are omitted from these calculations.

There were in the county 9,278 Occupiers or Heads of Families, who were in occupation of less than five rooms, being 94.8% of the total for the county. Of these 490 or 5% of the families in the county occupied one room; 2,328 or 23.8%, two rooms; 4,042 or 40.3%, three rooms; and 2,418 or 24.7%, occupied four rooms.

There were in the county 188 tenements in which the room had only one occupant; 228 cases where the room had 2-4 occupants, 71 cases in which there were 5-7 occupants and 3 cases where the occupants of one room exceeded 7 in number, including one case where eleven persons occupied the same room.

Birthplace of Inhabitants

Of the population in 1926, 69.95% were born in the county, 26.31% in other counties in Saorstat Eireann. 1.4% in Northern Ireland, 2.16% in Great Britain, and 0.58% were born abroad.


In 1911 there were in the county 54,920 persons aged 9 years and upwards; of these 50,128 or 91.3% could read and write; 1,373 or 2.5% could read only and 3,149 or 6.2% were illiterate. As this census is the starting point where the age was raised from 5 years to 9 years; no comparison can be made with previous figures from other censuses. The report states that the percentage of those of 5 years and upwards who were unable to read and write was 14.1% in 1891, 11.2% in 1901 and in 1911 had fallen to 9.3%.

Military Index, 1832

On the shelves in the National Archives of Ireland are some indices – books – and these books are indexed in a number of ways – the general title is ‘Index of Official Papers’. For most of the years, they have this title – but then for some of the years, there are Military or other indices with information separated from the general run of the mill official index for that year.

There is information in these as to the movements of various regiments – the simple fact of groups being overcome by cholera or some such gives us an idea of the times that diseases were present in certain places or all of Ireland. There are references to marriage records in here – requests from people for the effects of some other person, indicating relationships.

All the indices are indexed alphabetically – in the general indices then there may be a cross reference back to another letter of the alphabet in order to find the reference number.

The reference for any document is the number – what you see here has not been checked against the original and only covers items to ‘O’. As it stands, it simply gives you the researcher an idea of a resource that is not mentioned or rarely mentioned in lists of Irish genealogical resources.

Whilst the majority of th original documents may not be extant, the indices are still an extremely important resourse. To the best of my knowledge these have not yet been placed on microfilm.
