Bealtaine signals the start of summer. Anyone who speaks Irish will (12)   familiar
with this word, (13)   Bealtaine is also the Irish word for the month of May, along with
the festival on the first day of that month. The word beal may have meant ‘bright light’ and the

tradition. Until a hundred years ago, people in some country areas of Ireland still followed the
custom (15)   building two great fires in a field on this day and driving their cattle
between the fires to protect them from disease. According to a text from the 10th century, the

“I am between two Bealtaine fires about it”.

to protect the Dutch against (18)   (attack) from pirates and various Native American
tribes, and to keep other potential dangers out of the town.
The area near the wall became (19)   (know) as Wall Street. Because of its
