Story about the burning of the wooden holy images or statues [of saints Columba, Moluag and Cyril/Curalan] by local young men possibly collected from Mary Carmichael, aged 71, Druimavuic, Glencreran [Earra Ghàidheal/Argyllshire]. An old woman at Leitir-ru-Altain [Letterwalton, Earra Ghàidheal/Argyllshire] called out to Cuirralain [Curalan/St Cyril] and he appeared before her and said, 'Mas duil leat an duine sin cuimich a lamh.' The woman took the breid (kertch) from her head and bound the saint’s wounded hand, which thereupon healed. The dialogue is repeated in slightly different form at the end of the story as 'O chaomh Chuirallai, Cuim an cuire tu an duine gu bas, Mas trua leats an duine, cuimich a lamh.'
Dates 29 August 1883
