I invoke the land of Ireland.
Much-coursed be the fertile sea,
Fertile be the fruit-strewn mountain,
Fruit-strewn be the showery wood,
Showery be the river of water-falls,
Of water-falls be the lake of deep pools,
Deep pooled be the hill-top well,
A well of the tribes be the assembly,
An assembly of the kings be Tara,
Tara be the hill of the tribes,
The tribes of the sons of Mil,
Of Mil be the ships the barks,
Let the lofty bark be Ireland,
Lofty Ireland Darkly sung,
An incantation of great cunning;
The great cunning of the wives of Bres,
The wives of Bres of Buaigne;
The great lady Ireland,
Eremon hath conquered her,
Ir, Eber have invoked for her.
I invoke the land of Ireland.
-Amergin (The Conquest of 
the Sons of Mil)


Invocation II
The man=Flann O'Brien!

Catechism of Clich`e

What, as to the quality of solidity,

imperviousness, and of what

firmness,are facts?
And as to temperature?

With what do facts share this 

quality of frigidity?
To what do hard facts 

The Situation.
And to what does a cold fact

The matter.
What must we do to the

hard facts of the situation?
Face up to the 

hard facts of the situation.
What does a cold fact

frequently still do?
And what is notoriously useless 

as a means of altering 

the hard facts of the situation?
All the talk in the world.
Is this killing you?

It certainly is!

-Myles Na Gopaleen,in:
The Best of Myles,Ed.Kevin O' Nolan,
Hart-Davis Macgibbon,

Thanks for preparing  yourself!
