About 3. Dalin Men

3. Dalin Men in Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan.

There is an old saying which goes 'From Carrickmacross to Crossmaglen there are more rogues than honest men'. In 'The Green Fool' Patrick quotes the famous lines written by a local priest about an incident that took place in Carrick on a Fair Day.

A young innocent lad went into an eating house and was later arrested for being obstreperous. When he appeared before the Magistrates he claimed in his defence that someone put whiskey in his tea.

Nearby is St. Josephs Church which was built in 1866. Inside there are beautiful Harry Clarke stained glass windows and the Stations of the Cross are by Richard King.

On the left side of the street there is a row of ornate stone cottages - St.Joseph's Terrace (Weymouth Cottages). The 'B' crest denotes Bath as Lord Bath, Viscount Weymouth, had these cottages built on his estate.
