It looks to me like a cron job on helen.gayleard.com attempting to
fetch mail from mail.eircom.net encountered a message larger than the
limit set in the local .fetchmailrc file.  The oversized message
should be at mail.eircom.net in whatever mailbox fetchmail was
configured to poll at that server.
