Excerpt from Shanwalla

An old harness room, with bridles etc. Conary is sitting at fire, has just finished a meal and is putting down mug and plate, awkwardly. Bride Scarry is sitting on table, working at bodice of a dress.

Conary: Many is the place where you stretched out your hand to me, Bride Scarry; over the mering in Clare the time you had a harbour with the Brogans that were of your kin; and after that when you shifted over to Pat O'Malley that was of your kin; and after that again when you took service in the big house of the Darcys. And anything you would bring to me, if it was but a potato itself I would be sure of it, and I had no need to go sniffing the same as a yard dog to know was the bit sweet or stinking, wholesome or harmful, was thrust into the hand of the man is blind and defeated in the sight.
