DON’T UPSET A KINVARA GIRL!
https://widgetworld3.wordpress.com/podcasts/

Armed and masked raiders who attempted to invade a farmhouse at Kinvara, County Galway, caught a Tartar in the person of the farmer’s daughter, who pluckily kept the raiders at bay with a broom until her father arrived with a loaded rifle and drove them off.
The men knocked at the door of the house, and sought admission in the name of a neighbour, and on the door being opened the party rushed in and demanded the farmer’s guns at revolver point. Miss Finucane, the farmer’s daughter, resisted them, and during the struggle the men fired at her, but fortunately the shot went wide. Seizing a broom, the. lady belaboured the raiders with it to such purpoee that she was able to hold them off until her father came home with his gun.
