Céad Míle Fáilte

“I had the felicity . . . of seeing her Britannic Majesty on her first visit to this country, in the year 1849 . . . She passed down the broadest street in Dublin, or perhaps in Europe, amid a gaping crowd, but as far as I could at all see or hear, without a single cheer or other sign of sympathetic interest.”
