"He tore away half the prize story sharply and wiped himself with it. Then he girded up his trousers, braced and buttoned himself. He pulled back the jerky shaky door of the jakes and came forth from the gloom into the air.
In the bright light, lightened and cooled in limb, he eyed carefully his black trousers: the ends, the knees, the houghs of the knees. What time is the funeral? Better find out in the paper." (U4.537)
"A creak and a dark whirr in the air high up. The bells of George's church. They tolled the hour: loud dark iron.
Heigho! Heigho!
Heigho! Heigho!
Heigho! Heigho!" (U4.544)

From a Dublin Guidebook 1905: "The peal of [St George's] bells is said to be the most musical in Ireland, eclipsing even the celebrated bells of Shandon." The bells, 8 in number, were a gift, in 1828, from the architect Francis Johnston who designed the church. Johnston and his wife Anne lived on Eccles street. They wanted to encourage campanology within the parish, then the largest Anglican parish in the Diocese of Dublin, and to which they belonged.
P.S. When George's church closed in 1990, the bells were put in storage. They were later moved to Christ Church in Taney, and came alive again January 1st 2000.
"Quarter to. There again: the overtone following through the air. A third.
Poor Dignam!" (U4.549)
