The late Bishop O'Dwyer of Limerick was one day walking down a fashionable quarter of the city when his attention was attracted to a little urchin who was endeavouring on tip toe to reach the knocker of one of the beautiful hall-doors.
His Lordship who was very kind at heart, asked the little fellow if he would knock for him. The Bishop immediately gave a very commanding knock. Where upon the little fellow shouted, "Now we must run like hell."
