Publication referred to during the Minorities Round Table, Glencree on Friday 20th January 2023.
My object in publishing these "Fragments" is to try and combine a certain amount of little used information with some amusement and racial satisfaction. At the same time I wish to prove to my country-people that the Gaelic part of our national inheritance owes something to the racial admixtures which our country has seen. That, in fact, not only the Gaelic and old Irish but the new Irish elements are represented in the national mentality and characteristics; and that apart from whatever now be said to be working towards that end, we are a nation and a strongly marked one.
