Excerpt from The Buchanan Book: The Life of Alexander Buchanan, Q. C., Of Montreal, Followed by an Account of the Family of Buchanan
The Limerick slaughter is generally referred to this year, and was executed by one of those witty stratagems by which the insolence of an enemy is sometimes turned to his destruction. Sueno, in honor of his birthday, ordered a general fete and celebration throughout the kingdom; and the Danish Governor of Ireland distributed orders to all the department commanders to repair to Limerick to assist at the festival, ordering the Irish nobility, his vassals, to send in a couple of thousand of the most beautiful of their daughters to amuse the Danish officers. The nobility, ap parently submitting, thus introduced into the city a couple of thousands of Irish youth, yet beardless, dressed as women, and concealing long Irish skeins or daggers in their skirts, with orders to assassinate the Danish officials in their tipsiness, and possess themselves of the guard-house.
