it may half been a missfired brick
page 5, Finnegans Wake, James Joyce. Penguin 1999.
Tim Finnegan, stonemason, fell off a ladder as he worked on a tower. Maybe somebody threw a brick, which knocked him from the ladder. Or maybe he had too much to drink for lunch. Over a thousand and one stories existed in relation to Finnegan and the circumstances surrounding his rise and fall.
