Erin lies prone, one arm on her broken harp, under the weight of a big sheaf of corn inscribed 'Poisoned'. This is held in place by a ragged ruffian with a pitchfork; a (?) constable peers out from behind it. The sheaf is surmounted by a skull and two tithe-pigs. In the background are a long gallows with a row of pendent corpses and a dilapidated church. See No. 17263, &c.
