Description

Kathleen Fitzpatrick (1872-?) was an Irish author who lived in England. She was a contributor to the Westminster Gazette for which she wrote short articles on Irish peasant life and she wrote one novel The Weans at Rowallan (1905).


“Patsy quietly moved his stool back into the shadow of the chimney corner. In that mood Lull, if she saw him, would chase him from the kitchen when the news began; and clearly Teressa was bringing news worth hearing. As far back as Patsy or any of the children could remember, Teressa had brought the village gossip to Rowallan. Neither rain nor storm could keep the old woman back when there was news to tell. One thing only—a dog in her path—had power to turn her aside. The quietest dog sent her running like a hare, and the most obviously imitated bark made her cry.”
