    Dinis, you're bate, body and slaves! They rise with one accord, and moving their bodies with a slow motion to and fro, their arms apart, they continue to keep up a heart-rending cry. This change, now necessary in consequence of his semiclerical character, influenced him through every relation of life. The conversation already detailed between father and son took place on Friday, and on Saturday, a day on which the priest never holds a Station, and, of course, is generally at home, Dominick M'Evoy went to his house with the object already specified in view.

    The wail rises and dies away, at intervals, like the fitful breeze. Out we went, to the winds an' skies of heaven, bekase the rich bodagh made intherest aginst us. The festivals are unobserved and the rustic festivities neglected or forgotten — the bowlings, the cakes, the prinkums, do not often take place when starvation and pestilence stalk over a country, many parts of which appear as if a destroying army had but recently passed through it. In the meantime, the good woman, or vanithee, had got the pot of water warmed, in which Jemmy was made to put his feet.

    Your father, Dionysius, is a parishioner whom I regard and esteem to the highest degree of comparison, and you will be pleased to report my eulogium to himself and to his dacent family—and proud may they be of having so brilliant a youth among them as you are—ehem! Yet, while Denny delivered the aforesaid harangue from the chimney-corner, every eye was fixed upon him with an expression of pride and admiration which escaped not his own notice. She raised her shoulders as her hand reached outward, urging forth the spirit, miming the act of birth. Pathos and humor are the two levers by which the Irish character is raised or depressed; and these are blended, in a manner too anomalous to be ever properly described. O'Connor admits, however, that Carleton could not win either way.

Traits and Stories of the Irish Peasantry book was all upon the differ atween black an' white. If he doesn't expound that, I'll never consthru a line of Latin, or Greek, or Masoretic, while I'm livin'.

Though contrary to the Traits and Stories of the Irish Peasantry book and dignity of his position in life, yet did honest Denny then get desperately significant, and his face amazingly argumentative.

Never heed shakin' your head—listen an' it will be well worth your while. When young Denis had reached the age of sixteen or seventeen, he was looked upon by his father and his family, as well as by all their relations in general, as a prodigy.

Well, a bouchal, there are hard days and nights before you, so keep a firm heart. Young Denis O'Shaughnessy was old Denis's son; and old Denis, like many great men before him, was the son of his father and mother in particular, and a long line of respectable ancestors in general.

There was no Irish equivalent to Dickens or Gaskell, so far as I could make out. The old sacred association—for it was one which she had sung for him a thousand times,—until warned to desist by his tears—deepened the tenderness of her heart, and she said with difficulty, whilst she involuntarily held over the candle to gratify the father's heart by a sight of him.

He remains generally regarded as the doyen of the craft in Irish and one of the best writers to emerge from Ireland in the 20th century, despite the fact that the difficulty of his earlier style was criticised — a difficulty which may have robbed him of a wider readership.

At the close of every stanza of the dirge, the cry is repeated, to fill up as it were, the pause, and then dropped; the woman then again proceeds with the dirge, and so on to the close. An', Dinis O'Shaughnessy, who has a betther right to turn gintleman, nor the gorsoon that studied for that!

Come, come, a bouchal—don't be ashamed, or make any way sthrange at all, but ate hearty. William Carleton, now memorialised by the numerous summer schools that bear his name and contemporary literature by no less than Seamus Heany in his epic poem, The Station, was born in Co.

He advocates a broader range of possibilities, from stories that are almost essays to those that are almost poems. Good agin, abouchal! The landlady allowed him to read from 12 to 16 hours a day. Peter, but I won't allow that. Why, man, if you were not a rara avis of somnolency, a man of most frolicsome determinations, you'd be able to see that I've proved Phadrick to be an ass already.

The next morning Father Finnerty paid them his purposed visit, and, as he had promised, arrived in time for breakfast.

He lived in the bosom of a mountain, whose rugged breast he cultivated with a strength proportioned to the difficulty of subduing it. And now you might see the men fixing themselves on their saddles, sacks, and suggawns ; and Sure, when I look at your mild face, and think that you're takin' the world on your head to rise us out of our poverty, isn't my heart breakin'!

An' sure the intuition in him is good, anyhow; the Lord prosper him, an' every one that has the heart set upon the larnin'!

Traits and Stories of the Irish Peasantry

The most anxious thoughts of the Irish peasant through life revert to his death; and he will endure the extreme of poverty in order that he may scrape together the means of obtaining "a fine wake" and a "decent funeral. He went to Killanny, County Louth. He settled eventually in Dublin and his style became more direct, though still marked by imaginative intensity.

That was proper and according to custom.
