To Mr Patrick Griffin, blacksmith, Kinvara, belongs the credit of shoeing a horse belonging to Hodgins’ Circus that failed all the blacksmiths on their line of march. The horse was one of the wildest type and broke all the available car ropes in the town with which he was manacled but eventually he had to yield to the plucky son of Vulcan.
