Brady, Pat

The confidential servant ant of Thady Macdermot, who became a stool-pigeon for Thady’s bitterest enemy, Hyacinth Keegan, and whose testimony resulted in Thady’s conviction. 

"He was strong-built, roundshouldered, bow-legged, about five feet six in height, and he had that kind of external respectability about him, which a tolerably decent hat, strong brogues, and worsted stockings give to a man, when those among whom he lives are without such luxuries" - The Macdermorts of Ballycloran.
