French Celt

To Deasy's badgering interrogation about the proudest saying of an Englishman, Stephen reasonably supposes it may be that "the sun never sets" on his empire. Mr Deasy blurts out, "Ba!...That's not English. A French Celt said that." He is wrong. The saying is not unique to the British, but it has no known association with French Celts.
