a very good and sturdy people

"The Irish were a very good and sturdy people of strong back and broad shoulders to the man, they lived in the extreme western part of our city then. They were a wild looking people, sometimes undisciplined and turbulent. They were different in every way from their fellow countrymen that live among us today. Saint Patrick's day was always a great occasion for them, they decorated their streets in green and were quick to take offense at those who questioned their noise and rivalry" DC City Resident
