There are places which appear, at first sight, inaccessible to romance; and such a place was Mr. Wardlaw's dining-room in Russell Square. It was very large, had sickly green walls, picked out with aldermen, full length; heavy maroon curtains; mahogany chairs; a turkey carpet an inch thick: and was lighted with wax candles only

Arrah-na-Pogue, or, The Wicklow wedding by Dion Boucicault( Book )

41 editions published between 1860 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in 1864 and set during the Irish rebellion of 1798, Arrah-na-Pogue is an entertaining tale of romance and misadventure with rascally rebels, despicable villains and love-struck youths. The play is full of Boucicault's trademark comic roguery, farce and melodrama. As night falls on the Wichlow mountains, the popular but incorrigible rebel Beamish Mac Coul is lying in wait. He's out to ambush the cowardly rent collector Michael Feeny and relieve him of a 'big lump of money.' That done, he's off to marry Fanny Power. Down in the valley, love is in the air for Shaun the Post and our heroine Arrah Meelish too. But Arrah has a secret. And Michael Feeny has found out. As Shaun and Arrah celebrate their wedding, revenge comes a-calling. Love must conquer all--including the hangman's noose.--Cover, p.4
