His Duel With St Leger

Irish Humour Home






Curran was employed at Cork to prosecute a British officer of the name
of St. Leger, for an assault upon a Catholic clergyman. St. Leger was
suspected by Curran to be a creature of Lord Doneraile, and to have
acted under the influence of his lordship's religious prejudice. Curran
rated him soundly on this, and with such effect that St. Leger sent him
a challenge the next day. They met, but as Curran did not return his
fire, the affair ended. It was not necessary, said Curran, for me to
fire at him, for he died in three weeks after the duel, of the report
of his own pistol.
