'Was he very popular with the people?'
'Popular, is it? No, but the boys that was in the League them times hated him worse than they hated the devil.'
'And yet they didn't shoot him?'
'It wasn't for lack of trying, then. If they blazed at him once they blazed at him twenty times. But they couldn't hit him. It might have been that,' he added thoughtfully, 'that made him so unpopular in the latter end.'

From 'The Squireen' in George Birmingham's Irishmen All :

'Was he very popular with the people?'
'Popular, is it? No, but the boys that was in the League them times hated him worse than they hated the devil.'
'And yet they didn't shoot him?'
'It wasn't for lack of trying, then. If they blazed at him once they blazed at him twenty times. But they couldn't hit him. It might have been that,' he added thoughtfully, 'that made him so unpopular in the latter end.'

I can understand the feeling. It must be desperately annoying to waste powder and shot night after night and have nothing to show for it.
