Notes
The Weans of Rowallan [n.d.] is excerpted in Patricia Craig, The Rattle of the North: An Anthology of Ulster Prose (Blackstaff 1992); the passage ridicules sectarianism, showing a group of youngsters compelling Mrs. McRea to abandon her religious persuasion [as recounted in part in Giovanne Tallone, review, in ABEI Newsletter, No.10, Jan. 1996, p.9.]
