An Irish Hero.Long ago there lived at Darrigle
near Kilmeaden in Co. Waterford the greatest duelliest
in the world, and the people called his. Pat na Desrgal.
He was against all the Priests, and
Bishops of Ireland, and he is buried
at Kilmeaden and it is said that
his pistols are buried with him.
This is another story that I heard
One day Lord Waterford, got a great,
big hammer, and he invited Pat na Deargal to his house, and Pat came.
So Lord Waterford threw the hammer
and it hit the wall, and Pat took off
his coat, and got his sledge, and
threw it, and it hit the deer that
was on the wall, and knocked off
one of it's horns.
We now see the deer on the wall
with only one horn on him.
Taken down from.
