- When a distant Irish relative dies, a young American travels to Ireland to obtain his inheritance. He gets far more than he bargained for when a beautiful Irish colleen catches his eye.
- The Dublin riots leave four orphaned sisters who live just outside the city. Their land has been bequeathed to a young American, Richard Taylor, who arrives in Ireland to inspect the property. The sisters are afraid that he plans to throw them off the land, so at first, they treat him coolly. Then Richard saves Shamrock, one of the sisters, from British authorities who want to arrest her for taking part in a patriot's meeting. When Richard himself is arrested, Shamrock goes to the authorities to clear him of all guilt. Shamrock and Richard then realize that they are in love, and they make plans for an immediate wedding.—Pamela Short
- In a little cottage in Ireland lived a widow who was the self-appointed guardian to four orphan girls. The widow was poor, but was contented and happy to be surrounded by four of the prettiest girls in the country. Shammie, the eldest, was an incurable tomboy. The family struggled along on little or nothing, without a thought or care, until one day news reached them that the owner of the cottage where they lived rent-free, was coming from America to claim his property. The widow was up in arms, vowing to protect her wards from any intruding foreigners. And so when Richard Taylor arrived and saw Shammie and her sisters, he thought it wiser to conceal his identity, especially after he had seen Shammie. But the fact that he owned the property leaked out, and the girls resisted all his overtures of friendship and Shammie was obdurate. The young conspirator did everything to make Richard Taylor's life unhappy, tormenting him with a hundred tricks. About the time when Richard Taylor's love affairs were faring worst all kinds of trouble were happening in Dublin. There was a general uprising with street fighting and shooting. The unrest spread to the little village where Richard Taylor was having his own trouble with Shammie. There were meetings in the village and a regiment was sent down from Dublin to keep watch. One night a secret meeting of the rebels was held, in spite of the commanding officer's order. This so piqued the curiosity of Shammie that she determined to be present, and was enjoying herself immensely when the constabulary swooped down and put the rebels to flight. Rushing away frightened the dazed Shammie found herself at the door of Richard Taylor's house. To save her Taylor equips her with a suit of his old clothes and attempts to pass her off as his secretary. When the military break into the house a free-for-all fight ensues. In which Richard Taylor greatly distinguishes himself. The good-natured colonel, divining the reason of Taylor's determined resistance, orders the captured Shammie to be brought before him, and with a wink, orders Taylor to be shot. This brings Shammie to a realization of a certain feeling that she has struggled to conceal, and she pleads for the life of the condemned man who owns her love. The colonel commutes Taylor's sentence on certain conditions, to which Shammie agrees.—Moving Picture World synopsis
