During some random browsing this morning, pursuing links that caught my eye, I discovered something about the O’Briens, my grandmother’s family. She was from a poor and I assume landless class, except for a small holding of some sort that I tried to locate when I visited Ireland, so I guess this must be the side of the family that sold out?
Very wise in my view. Why lose everything over superstition?
I never realised that Guy Fawkes was a Catholic. How did that escape me? or maybe I did, and forgot it… That happens these days. Very good when re-reading novels.
Fascinating. Wikipedia is great.
