Famous quotes containing the words kerry and/or county:

    He’d gone to great expense
    Keeping all the Kerry men
    Out of that crazy fight;
    That he might be there himself
    Had travelled half the night.
    How goes the weather?
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Hold hard, my county darlings, for a hawk descends,
    Golden Glamorgan straightens, to the falling birds.
    Your sport is summer as the spring runs angrily.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
