1977 Reprint of the Michael Joseph Ltd, edition of 1939

A charming unstructured anthology of humorous legal anecdotes from Ireland. The stories include instances of judicial severity like that of Lord Justice Holmes’s sentencing an old man from a farming community to 15 years. The convict cried for mercy saying he would not live to finish the sentence. “Well,” said the judge, “try to do as much of it as you can!”

The contribution of litigants is also well documented, such as that of the defendant in a case about the allegedly unfair sale of a horse. Examining the ethics of horse-dealing, the judge barked at the defendant: “That’s not what you told (the purchaser) at the Bandon Fair.” “Oh no, but I'm on me oath now” came the reply which won him the case.
