Famous quotes containing the word geoffrey:
“Galway is a blackguard place,
To Cork I give my curse,
Tralee is bad enough,
But Limerick is worse.
Which is worst I cannot tell,
Theyre everyone so filthy,
But of the towns which I have seen
Worst luck to Clonakilty.”
—Anonymous. Clonakilty, from Geoffrey Grigsons Faber Book of Epigrams and Epitaphs, Faber & Faber (1977)
