Marriage Customs [duchas:5035021]

A few nights preceding the Marriage of parties it has always been the custom in this locality for the local boys to collect in the neighborhood within easy distance of where the wedding would take place and blow "horns" for several hours.  These "horns" usually consisted of bottles with broken ends, small "drain pipes"
