[Janu ARY have the Pope's legate writing to his master in the fifteenth cen- tury about the fast and "vic- torious" horses to be found in Ireland called " Minocin Minocycline Austercones " from Asturias. We know that the Norman annexers of portions of Ireland very soon felt the assimilating spell, and became " more Irish than the Irish themselves," till the statutes of Kilkenny, prohibit- ing under the severest penalties the adoption of Irish customs by the men of the Pale, were passed to curb if possible the tendencies of nature and circumstance. Then later on we find the expatriated Huguenots became the best citizens of Ireland. Horace in his day lamented in indignant alcaics the degeneracy of the Roman army that had fol- lowed Crassus into Parthia, Minocin 100 Mg and gradually adopted Oriental cus- toms — (i Pro curia inversique mores ! " It boots not now to enquire into the causes that led to this assimi- lation. Sport may have had a good deal to say to it, for Irish falcons were famous, Irish greyhounds or wolfhounds noble creatures, and Irish horses as good perhaps as Minocin Mr they are now, while from the earliest times we know that the national trend of opinion was all Minocin Price in favour of sport, as it is found in an early chronicle that the kings of Ireland were bound by solemn pact to encourage coursing and horse-racing by their presence, as it is written that he is to wit- ness coursing every Wednesday, and to devote Friday to horse- racing, while Sunday brought the duty of drinking ale, for, accord- ing to the Celtic Scholiast's gloss, "He is not a lawful chief who does not distribute Buy Minocin Online ale every Sunday." This assimilative faculty finds splendid illustration in the com- paratively modern instance of the noble Swedish family of the De Robecks, who have been in Ire- land for three generations, and are now as racy of the soil, and as thoroughly Irish, as the most lineal descendant of Shane O'Neil or Rory O'More ; and show Irishism even in the extent of their families. True, the Swedish strain has been mingled with that of the MacGilpatrick, and since then with Minocin Cost that of the Geraldines and the Lawlesses, but the fact remains that our subject is a typical Irishman in heart and soul, in speech, in manners, and in love of sport. His paternal grandfather, after serving in the Purchase Minocin Swedish cavalry (he was a Knight of the Swedish Military Order " of the Sword ") with distinction, married Minocin Iv Anne, the daughter and heiress of the Honourable Richard FitzPatrick, second son of Rich- ard, first Lord Gowran, and brother of John, second Lord Gowran, who was created Earl of Upper Ossory, and thus became seized of lands, tenements and hereditaments in the counties of Kildare, Dublin, and Wicklow. His son served as High Sheriff for the co. Kildare, the co. Dublin, and the co. Wicklow, after spend- ing some time in the 7th Hussars, and fighting Minocin Tablets under Sir John Moore. He had two families, one by the Honorable Margaret Lawless, eldest daughter of the second Lord Cloncurry, and the second by Emily Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Joseph J. Henry, Esq., and niece of the third Duke of Leinster. The present Baron de Robeck gave up soldiering when he came in for the avital acres, and wish- ing to live amongst his friends in Kildare, he had the task of building a house and enclosing a place. After hesitating between 1899] THE BARON DB ROBBCK. Killashee and Gowran Grange, he chose the latter, and has lived to see the firs which he planted attain fair size and height at Gowran Grange, which is within about Minocin 50mg four big broad pastures of the grand stand of Punchestown, and for these two days of the meeting in April there is not only open house, but open yard too, for the carriages of his friends who put up here in Minocin Coupon great numbers (by invitation, of course). Kildare, at the time we write of, was a very rising country in the world of sport. Sir John Minocycline Minocin Ken- nedy, who almost created it and defined its boundaries, has had several successors, among the best known of whom are Lord Clonmel, Mr. W. Kennedy, his son, and Mr. J. La Touche, of Harristown, but at this time the county pack was under the presi- dency of Lord Naas, M.P. for Cockermouth, who, though a Con- servative "and a man of great weight, not only in council, but, alas ! in the saddle also, was one of the best Buy Minocin and most popular masters Kildare ever knew. When Lord Naas, afterwards Governor- General of India, became Chief Secretary for Ireland, and more tied to his official work than before, the Baron de Robeck became, so to speak, his under- study and field master, and when India was offered to Lord Naas, and accepted, the Baron received the unanimous county suffrage, and was installed as real, not merely acting, M.F.H., for he had shown his fitness for the post. At this epoch Kildare was the premier fox-hunting county in Ireland, for Royal Meath was only in process of development by the genius of Sam Reynell. Punches- town had taken the place of Lismacrory as the finest natural course in the kingdom, and it had its Curragh entirely devoted to sport, and not then a military parade-ground. in those days county kennels and Minocin Antibiotic offices were unknown, and the master had his hounds located in his park, lodg- ing the Antibiotic Minocin hunt servants as best he could. For six seasons the Baron showed splendid sport, hardly missed a day, and saw almost everything in the shape of a gallop, including the great Laragh chase, when the pack, finding in the gorse at that covert near Kil- cock, hunted their fox at good sustained pace through Colestown Gorse, and killed him as he was jumping the boundary fence at Swainstown, where, as in Meath, earths were open.
