To Extract A Thorn

"The Briar that spreads, the thorn that grows, the sharp spike that pierced the flesh of Cúchulainn, give you the power to draw this thorn from the flesh, or let it perish inside; in the name of Bridget.  So Be It.

Note: this is an adaptation of a christianised charm.  Source version can be found in Ancient Legends, Mystic Charms and Superstitions of Ireland.  By Lady Wilde. 1888.
