A Killinchy Muffler

John Johnson Marshall
Chapter VII (4) - Start of Chapter

In the Ards, the village of Killinchy was once known as “Killinchy in the Woods,” and every bonnie County Down lass, and some in other localities as well, understands what a “Killinchy Muffler” is, and also the uses to which it can be put. For the benefit of the uninitiated it may be explained that this comfortable protection is a coat sleeve with the arm of a member of the opposite sex inside it.
