Summary - An anecdote about a poor, kind old woman.

There was a poor old woman in the area who was very kind. She would peel the egg she got from another woman, implying that she had eaten it, and give the egg to the contributor. There is mention of the proverb, 'Ged nach biodh agamsa ach an t-ugh gheibheadh tusa am plaosg' [If I had only an egg, you would get the shell].
