Excerpt from The Book of Ballynoggin Father O'Kay of Baleila was on his way to Ballynoggin to consult Lawyer Kennada. A strange thing had just happened, and Father O'Kay's manner was more than usually abstracted though there was an expression of excitement in his eyes and a glow on each cheekbone. His old one-eyed cob was quite aware of his master's state of mind and so took matters leisurely. He began with a satisfying brush of his forehead against the tufts of fern on a mossy dyke; after which he made arabesques along the road, for the grasses, dandelions and great sorrels grew on either side; and, as every horse knows, casual snatches of such dusty salad are sweeter far than the formal abundance of mere stable corn or authorised pasture in dewy meads. The road went up and down, winding between the vandyked sandy little beaches - where the offshoot of the great bay outside cut into the land and lay like a shining tentacle - on one side, and the jagged limestone rocks on the other side, with some fisherfolks' cottages and a few comfortable houses here and there, picturesquely disposed; and, where it turned more inland, sheltered hollows where great trees hung across it. The cob knew the most pleasant spots. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
