Excerpt from Traits and Stories of the Irish Peasantry by William Carleton

“Why, thin, I doubt that same, sir,” replied he,
“for all he’s so great in the books;
for, you see, while they were ding dust at it,
who comes in but mad Delany,
and he attacked Mat,
and in less than no time rubbed the consate out of him,
as clane as he did out of Frazher.”

(London: J M Dent & Co., 1896 - Volume II), p 198
