The Life of St Féchín of Fore (Author: [unknown])

section 40

One day, Pastól, Féchín's cook, went to a forge to get a coulter made. He took with him a piece of bacon (as payment) for making the coulter. Howbeit the smith's lad made of the bacon a mock coulter, and put it into the wallet on Pastól's back, and told him that the coulter was ready in his wallet. When Pastól came to Féchín, [gap: some omission here] and they found nothing in the wallet but the coulter of bacon. When Féchín saw that, he blessed the bacon, and a coulter of iron was made thereout. And that coulter remained till these recent45 times, and so forth.46
