During the past 40 years, I have been a postman in the Cloghan area, and on my rounds have had the previlege of becoming well acquainted with the people from the townland on both sides of Reelin river, around Cloghan, Commeen, Ballykerrigan, Letterhillue and the neighbouring parish of Inskeel.

An immence debt of gratitude is owed to past generations who, even through persecution, hardship and poverty, clung to their language and their culture and handed down to uss, such a rich heritage of lore, signs and portent, that enabled me to compile this account, on traditinal methods of foretelling the weather.

We of the present generation, have the sacred duty, of taking pride in our heritage, and handing it on to posterity.
