A Political Hurrah At A Funeral

Irish Humour Home






Ascending the mountain road between Dublin and Glencullen, in company
with an English friend, O'Connell was met by a funeral. The mourners
soon recognized him, and immediately broke into a vociferous hurrah for
their political favorite, much to the astonishment of the Sassenach;
who, accustomed to the solemn and lugubrious decorum of English

hurrah at a funeral, it was replied that the corpse would have doubtless
cheered lustily too, if he could.
