Famous quotes containing the words county and/or kerry:

    It would astonish if not amuse, the older citizens of your County who twelve years ago knew me a stranger, friendless, uneducated, penniless boy, working on a flat boat—at ten dollars per month to learn that I have been put down here as the candidate of pride, wealth, and aristocratic family distinction.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    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)
