Public Absurdities In Ireland

Irish Humour Home






Among the public absurdities in Ireland, Swift notices the insurance
office against fire; the profits of which to the amount of several
thousand pounds, were annually remitted to England. For, observes he,

indebted to England for the materials to light our own fires, but for
engines to put them out.
