Author of Paddiana, or scraps and sketches of Irish Life, present,
and past, 2 vols. (Bentley 1847); 2nd edn. 1848 IF/IF2
Stephen Brown, Ireland in Fiction (Dublin: Maunsel 1919),
cites some contents of Paddiana, e.g., Mick Doolans Head,
Still-Hunting, Barney OHay, &c.; and
comments: the old calumnies are raked up and set down here, with
the conclusion that the Irish are an uncivilised people whose national
character is a jumble of contradictions; told with verve.
Desmond Clarke, Ireland in Fiction [Pt. II] (1985) notes 2nd edn.
published by Charles II [sic] as Larry Lynch; or, Paddiana (London
n.d.), with same stories in different order.
