The wise old Abbess Audrey from county Clonmel was dying. The nuns gathered around her bed trying to make her comfortable. The nuns gave her some warm milk to drink, but she refused to drink it. Then one nun took the glass back to the kitchen. She remembered that a bottle of Scotch whiskey received as a gift in the last Noel, she opened and poured a generous amount into the warm milk.
Back at Abbess’s bed, she held the glass to her lips. Audrey drank a little, then a little more. Before they knew it, she had drunk the whole glass down to the last drop.
“Mother”, the nuns pleaded, “Please give us some wisdom before you left”. Old Audrey raised herself up in bed with a pious look on her face and said, “Never and ever sell that cow”.
