Encounter With A Fishwoman

Irish Humour Home






There was a fishwoman in Cork who was more than a match for the whole
fraternity of her order. She could only be matched by Mrs. Scutcheen, of
Patrick-street, Dublin--the lady who used to boast of her bag of
farthin's, and regale herself before each encounter with a pennorth of

sisterhood. She was vanquished for the first time, though she had been
thirty years on the stones o' the quay.
