Irish Proverbs: Women and Men

Tell your friends about!
Email this to someoneShare on Facebook0Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+0Share on Tumblr0Pin on Pinterest0


Beauty is only skin deep but nobody wants to be drowned

Elegance and beauty are the same thing when there’s a man after them

Always make sure she looks beautiful before breakfast as well as after dinner


Love is blind but the neighbours see through it

Love is like stirabout, it must be made fresh every day

Love at first sight often happens at twilight

If you live in my heart you live rent free

Old coals are easiest kindled

Sheeps eyes don’t see beyond the settle

If she has a mind of her own, there won’t be many with a mind for her

Wait till you’re 18 to marry and don’t be spoiling your growth

If a man is in love he’s no judge of beauty but when love wears off he’ll tell a woman about her warts


Men are like bagpipes: no sound comes from them until they’re full

A man is a man when his woman is a woman

A sea wind changes less often than the mind of a weak man

A man works hard for success and then squanders his time talking about it

No man can prosper without his womans leave


She mightn’t be much good to boil a pot of spuds, but she’d look lovely carrying them to the table

Women would drive you mad but the asylum would be a cold place without them

A jealous woamn would make trouble between two breast bones

There’s nothing that makes the windows (eyes) open like a fine doorful of a woman

Never be in a court or acastle without a woman to make your excuse

A Tyrone woman will never buy a rabbit without a head for fear it’s a cat

A woman and child are like a goat, if they’re not in trouble they’re coming out of it

It takes a woman to outwit the devil

An inch makes a world of differnce when it’s in a womans nose

Where comes a cow, there follows a woman

Where comes a woman, there follows trouble

Let her rant and rave as long as the sun is high and as long as she’s loving, close and tender when the sun sets

The Lost Path by Thomas Osborne Davis

Email this to someoneShare on Facebook0Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+0Share on Tumblr0Pin on Pinterest0

“Miss Hutton was deeply affected by Davis’ death coming only a month after they had become engaged Writing to a friend she stated: “In the midst of all my sorrow, the thought flashes through me, what pride, what glory, to have been the chosen one of such a heart! Oh, if I were to live through an eternity of grief I would not give up the short month of happiness that little time of communion with all that was most pure, most holy on earth……. I try to think of all that he has been spared; no woman’s love would have saved him from bitter disappointment; no care of mine could have prevented his glorious spirit being bruised, crushed by the unworthiness of those he had to deal with ……. No ideal I could form could be brighter, purer than he was….. One little short month it was and yet a whole existance of my love, which, I pray will purify and raise my whole soul till it be wothy to join that bright one gone before”

Annie Hutton died on 7th June 1853 in her 28th year and is buried in St. George’s cemetery in Drumcondra.

Thomas Davis wrote of Annie:
“Her eyes are darker than Dunloe,
Her soul is whiter than the snow,
Her tresses like arbutus flow,
Her step like frightened deer:
The still thy waves, capricious lake!
And ceaseless, soft winds round her wake
Yet never bring a cloud to break
The smile of Fannie dear!

Old Mangerton! thy angel’s plume –
Dear Innisfallen! brighter bloom
And Muckross! whisper through the gloom
Quaint legends to her ear!
Till strong as ash tree in its pride,
And gay as sunbeam on the tide,
We welcome back to Liffey’s side
Our brightest Fannie dear.”

Judging by what Annie said of Thomas and his poem of her – he found that love.

Also, when he died his funeral was a public one. Everyone who was anyone in the country attended and everyone who anyone may have considered no one also attended.

The Nation in the report on his funeral wrote: “Irish soil holds no more precious dust than his. The brave life he led, and the noble work he did, are not lost – shall never be lost to the Island that he loved so dearly. Souls like his never die, but make a part of the history and the heart of their country for ever”

Poems mourning his death were written by Samuel Ferguson, John Fisher Murray, Dalton Williams, J.D. Frazer, Denis Florence McCarthy, Francis Davis, Martin MacDermot, Maurice O’Connell, Bartholomew Dowling, W. P. Mulchinock, ‘Eva’ and others – all the major poets of that time in other words.

Gavan Duffy described Samuel Fergusons’ poem as “the most celtic in structure and spirit of all the elegies laid on the tomb of Davis”

Final verse of Samuel Fergusons’ poem to Davis:

Oh, brave young men, my love, my pride, my promise,
‘Tis on you my hopes are set.
In manliness, in kindliness, in virtue,
To make Erin a Nation yet;
Self-respecting, self-relying, self-advancing,
In union or in severance, free and strong;
And if God grant this, then under God to Thomas Davis
Let the greater praise belong!

So – it seems that Davis also achieved ‘soldier’s fame’ and more than that.

His path was not lost – ‘The Lost Path’ – it’s “the love of my heart ” – “Ar grá mo chroí”

Thomas was on the right path and got his hearts desires – only he didn’t live long enough to enjoy them.

Penal Times: Charter Schools

Tell your friends about!
Email this to someoneShare on Facebook0Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+0Share on Tumblr0Pin on Pinterest0

From: ‘The Penal Laws, 1691-1760, by Maureen Wall. Irish History Series, No. 1 published by the Dublin Historical Association, c/o Department of History, University College, Dublin.

The Charter Schools –
But since all of them paid lip service to the policy of promoting the Protestant interest, they did agree to provide financial assistance for one such scheme. Primate Boulter, an Englishman, and virtual governor of Ireland for a considerable period, showed more enthusiasm than the members of the Irish parliament for the spread of Protestantism. In 1731, finding as he said, that “instead of converting those that are adults, we are daily losing many of our meaner people, who go off to popery,” he founded a society for establishing a system of primary schools for “instructing and converting the younger generation,” throughout Ireland, and applied for a royal charter, which was granted in 1733. The objects of the scheme, according to the charter, were “that the children of the popish and other poor natives … may be instructed in the English tongue and in the principles of true religion and loyalty in all succeeding generations.” The scheme was at first financed by a royal bounty of £1000 a year and by benefactions of land and money from interested persons in Ireland and England, but in 1745 the Irish parliament agreed to vote it, as an additional income, the proceeds of a tax on hawkers and pedlars. From 1757 on the parliamentary grants were considerably increased. Finding that the conversion through day schools of Catholic children living with their parents was impossible, it was decided that they should be removed to schools remote from their homes and afterwards apprenticed to Protestants. On marriage to a Protestant they were to receive a gift of £5. Apart from promoting Protestantism, the schools had a second aim which was the training of the children “in labour and industry in order to cure that habitual laziness and idleness which is too common among the poor of this country.” Special attention was to be paid to training them in the linen manufacture and in agriculture with a view to promoting the prosperity of the country in general. The children admitted were to be between the ages of six and ten years, but since there was no law for removing children forcibly from their homes, and since few Catholic parents could be induced to send their children to the schools, nurseries were set up which took in infants between the ages of two and six -many of them orphans and foundlings- and these nurseries served as feeders for the charter schools. There were nurseries in York Street in Dublin and in Monasterevan in Kildare to supply children to the Leinster schools; one in Shannon Grove in Limerick for Munster, and one in Monivea in Galway for Connacht. Because of lack of supervision and the neglect and peculation of those placed in charge of the schools, the children were ill-treated, dirty, overworked, badly fed and clothed, and the mortality rate was exceedingly high. Although up to fifty of these schools were established throughout the country their success in carrying out their aim can be gauged from the report of the royal commission on Irish education in 1825, which states that in the ninety years during which the scheme had been in operation, 12,745 was the total number of charter school children apprenticed, and 1,555 had received the marriage portion of £5 given to those who married Protestants. By no means all of these had been the children of Catholic parents, for the supply of Catholic children not being enough, children of Protestants had been freely admitted to the schools. However, the charter schools salved the consciences of those who regarded the conversion of Irish Catholics to Protestantism as a desirable objective, and session after session the Lord Lieutenant’s speech from the throne called on parliament to pay due attention to these schools. Nevertheless, Prirnate Boulter’ scheme can hardly be deemed to have been an unqualified success.

Parochial Papers by Very Rev. Canon Moore, P.P., Johnstown

Tell your friends about!
Email this to someoneShare on Facebook0Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+0Share on Tumblr0Pin on Pinterest0

Published in the Ossory Archaeological Society, Thomastown. In the Roman Catholic Parish of Thomastown there are very many ruins of ancient churches, &c., which well deserve the attention of the antiquarian.

1.- The most remarkable remnant of antiquity in the parish is, of course, the Abbey of Jerpoint. As its history is well known, we shall say very little about it. It was founded for Cistercians in 1180, by Donald, Prince of Ossory. The founder and Felix O’Dullany, bishop of Ossory, were interred in this Abbey. It did not escape the illiberal enactments of the English during the fourteenth century. In 1380 it was ordained that no mere Irishman should be permitted to make his profession there. The Abbot of Jerpoint was a lord of Parliament. The building is still in a good state of preservation.

2.-The old Gothic church of Thomastown is likewise too well known to need much description. There is a fine old Irish cross at the right side of the entrance. There are also some very old tombs in the grave yard. Among them there is one which bears the following inscription : –“Here lies the body of Patrick Lincoln, who died the 16th of December, 1666, and of Mary Dobbyn, his wife, who ordered this monument. She died the 11th day of May, 1709.” The tomb is elaborately worked, having emblems of the Passion, &e. It has also a shield empaling the arms of Lincoln and Dobbyn. Prior to the date first mentioned a fine silver chalice was presented to the chapel of Thomastown by a Mary Dobbyn – the same person, we presume, whose name is on the monument. It has the following inscription :-“Orate pro anima Mariae Dobbyn quae me fieri fecit, 1687.” Translation – “Pray for the soul of Mary Dobbyn, who caused me to be made, 1687”. In reference to this lady, we may also mention that there is in the chapel of Thomastown a. beautifully carved oaken statue of the Virgin and Child to which she presented crowns of silver in 1705.

3. – Near Thomastown, to the North-West of the town, is a church, or rather the ruins of a church, called “Modaleen.” (We write it as it is pronounced). It is evidently a very old Irish church, probably of far earlier date than the fine Anglo-Norman ruin of which we have just spoken. There are no traditions regarding it. Some suppose it to have been called after St. Mary Magdelan, its patron. We do not believe such to be the case.

4.- Church Jerpoint, as it is called, is apparently an Anglo-Norman erection. It is divided into nave and choir. It has a strongly-built tower at the west-end. Near the church is a tomb having the figure of a priest clad in vestments. There are no traditions or legends regarding it.

5.-Tho Priory of Dysert, about a mile-and-a-half S. E. of Thomastown, is beautifully situated on the Nore. The Anglo-Norman tower at the west end of the church is still perfect; but the church itself is almost wholly in ruins. It was turned to private uses by the family of Berkley – ancestors of the famous bishop Berkley of Cloyne. His father is said to have kept a school or academy there, and is said to have been buried on the top of the tower under a large slab, commonly called “the minister’s flag.” The Berkleys threw all the tombstones in and around the church into the Nore. Dysert is said to have been held as a house of novices, dependant on the Augustinian Priory of Kells.

6.-Columbkill Church was about 60 feet long by 20 wide. The walls wore nearly three feet thick, but badly built. There are no remains of windows, of font, or of anything else of the kind, save a little gable cross now marking a grave. The opening of the southern or south-eastern door also remains. Near this place is a holy well elegantly surrounded by Masonry. Up to a late period crowds used to assemble here on the Patron day, which was the Sunday after the 9th of .June.

7.- Kilcullen old church is about two-and-a-half miles east of Thomastown. It is about 25 feet long and 10 feet wide, and is very rudely built. It is in a mountainous locality, but commands a prospect of great extent and beauty. No traditions, no Patron day.

8. – Killeen, in Mountjuliet demesne, lies about two-and-a-half miles west of Thomastown. It has now totally disappeared, and its site is occupied by the monuments of the family of the Earls of Carrick. The name may signify the little church, or the place may have been called after Killian the martyr. No traditions, no memory of a Patron day. Near the site of this old church is a beautiful holy well.

9.- Killarney, “The church of the sloes,” (Joyce). It has not a stone upon a stone, nor any other vestige left. Captain Myhill, an officer of Cromwell, who lived in the townland of Killarney, was buried here. His sword, with a portion of the scabbard, was found in 1835. “Rogers, London, makers,” was marked on it.

10.–Teaumple Tehawn (we write it as it is pronounced) is a small church to the east of Thomastown, and on an elevation near Castle Grenan. It is a very ancient church, and appears to have been re-modelled by the Dens, Castellans of Grenan. There is a St. Tian; Feast 23rd Feb., Mart. Donegal. There is a tradition that on the occasion of the first Protesant being buried here, a commotion was created among the dead, who cried out to have his body removed from the holy place.

11.- Blessington, in Irish Lisnamanagh. The Lis i.e. “the house or fort of the monks”, is still extant. It is a circular rath of considerable extent, and is situated in a romantic locality. There are indistinct traditions of monks having been here. It is looked upon as a wonder that there are some hawthorns in the lis on which no thorns over grow. Some relics were found here about the year 1830. . I

12.- Kilmurry, i.e., Mary’s Church, was situated about one mile north of Thomastown. Not a vestige of it now remains. Even its site is not well known, although some very old people undertake to point it out. In the demesne of Kilmurry is a. field which is still called “the church field.” The mansion was at one time the residence of Chief Justice Bushe. •

13.- Tullaherin, with its fine round tower and fine old church, is too well known to need description. In the graveyard is a stone bearing an “Ogham description.” Patron, Saint Kieran ; Feast, 5th March. On the 5th March, 1800, there were seventy-five tents erected at Tullaherin, as we have heard from a, man who was there on that day.

14.- Kilfane, called from St. Phaan; Feast, 1st January, Mart. Donegal To the south of Kilfane House is a well with a very ancient cross. To the north is the Anglo-Norman Chureh of Kilfane, probably built by the Cantwells, owners of the land, the walls of this church are very strong, and an Anglo-Norman tower is built at the south side of the nave. Inside the church is an effigy in chain armour, elegantly sculptured, and in excellent preservation. The legs are crosswise, which shows that. the warrior was a Crusader. On the left arm is a shield bearing the arms of Cantvell. All the walls of the church are standing. It was used as a Protestant place of worship till 1835.

15 – Kilbline. Near the castle of that name is a ruined little church. It may have been dedicated St. Blaan, bishop, 10th August, Mart. Donegal. No legends or traditions.
16 – Skebul Brunnagh, now Brown’s Barn, is a very ancient, but greatly injured ruin. It is beautifully situated on the Nore, about two and a-half miles east of Thomastown. There is a St. Bran, 8th June, near Donegal, near Tallaght. No traditions.

17 – Kilmonage, near Kilminock, is very ancient. It was of a very small extent, and is now almost totally destroyed. Its patron may be presumed to have been St. Mohenog, the ‘h’ being mute, as is very common in Irish. We remember to have seen the above written Kilmohenog in some old parish register. This little ruin is situated about four miles south-east of Thomastown.

18-Poerswood is so called from a family of De La Poers, who lived in the townland. It is called in Irish Kilcornan. There is a St. Cornan, Jan. 6, near Donegal. This little church may have been a, private place of worship for the Castellans of Poerswood, as it is only a short distance from the place where their castle stood.
