Long ago there was a landlord living in Bellharbour. ...

Long ago there was a landlord living in Bellharbour. His name was Mr. Daly. He wa a very bad landlord. He had fifteen in family, eight girls and seven boys. The seven boys and one girl were Protestants as were their father and mother. The rest died very young.
There were more landlords in New Quay and Finavarra, the Browne's and Skerret's. The Browne's were vary bad. There was an old man in New Quay. He was fairly rich. He had no land. His rent was very high on the house as he kept it very tidy. It was £50 a month. All his money went on the rent and he was thrown out on the road by the Browne's. Some family took him in & they were put out as well. They all died & all the Browne's died as well.
