ANONYMOUS. Classical Illustrations of Modern Opinions and Usages in Ireland. Dublin: Dublin University Magazine, 1837 (Volume 10, No. 58). 12 pages. Facsimile of original article, taken from the Dublin University Magazine, 1837 (double-column text). The object of the article was to illustrate to those who scorned Irish customs and usages, but admired the same when read in Greek or Roman texts, that many of the traditions were often very similar. The author covers such areas as funeral candles, carrying the corpse, money in the coffin, `keening', sympathetic cures, blessing a person who sneezes, wedding rings, thumbs, drowned bodies, charms and antidotes, and more.
