Cailleadh an pleidhce amadáin Boyle Roche. I measc na rudaí seafóideacha a tháinig ó bhéal an pharlaiminteora úd, cuimhnítear ar,
"Mr Speaker, I smell a rat; I see him forming in the air and darkening the sky; but I'll nip him in the bud!"Cailleadh an cláirseoir Donncha Ó hAmsaigh agus é in aois 112. Nuair a thug ministir Gallda cuairt air, ar seisean:
‘I found him lying on his back in bed, near the fire of his cabin, his harp under the bedclothes, by which his face was covered also. When he heard my name, he started up, being already dressed, and seemed rejoiced to hear the sound of my voice... . He then tuned his old time-beaten harp, his solace, and his bedfellow, and played with astonishing justness and good taste... The Coolin, The Dawning of the Day, Eibhlín, a Rún, and Ceann Dubh Dílis'.
