The frog is not indigenous to Ireland but was introduced and as a result, there is no Gaeilge name for it. However, it didn't take long for it to be incorporated into folk cures, one of which involved curing whooping cough, by placing the frog in a child's mouth and then releasing the frog alive... hopefully taking the cough with it! It was also used by fairies who transformed themselves into frogs. One story tells of a frog with a swollen belly leading a midwife to a fairy fort for the delivery of a fairy woman's baby.
