This is the tale of Major Sinclair Yates, an Anglo-Irish man who becomes the Resident Magistrate in a small Irish village. A fantastically-witty, laugh-out-loud story sure to entertain all who read its pages, "Experiences of an Irish R.M." constitutes a must-read for fans of Irish humour and literature. Contents include: "Great-Uncle McCarthy", "In the Curranhilty Country", "Trinket's Colt", "The Waters of Strife", "Lisheen Races, Second-Hand", "Philippa's Fox-Hunt", "A Misdeal", "The Policy of the Closed Door", "The House of Fahy", "Occasional Licenses", and "'Oh Love" Oh Fire!'". Many vintage books such as this were becoming increasingly rare and expensive. This volume is now republished in an available, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction. First published in 1899.
