Subject: RE: Lay the bent to the bonnie broome? Meaning?
There are still some corners in Clare where people put leaves/branches over or on the door on the first of May. It was pretty common in Ennistimon but seems to be getting rarer in the last decade. Often chestnut leaves are put on doors, probably because they're among the first to appear and avaliable locally, but other leaves as well.
