MARINER Irish meanings (30) RE: Irish meanings 19 May 09


Great bit of information Noreen .I feel I should point out that "Bargy" is often pronounced incorrectly by many who sing this song, Luke Kelly included. They call it BAR-GEE.This is incorrect. Locally,at least,it is pronounced BAR-GHEE .I hope this makes sense.Forth ,Bargy and Shelmalier are three of the old Baronies of Wexford.
Bargy Castle in the Barony of Bargy was the home of Beauchamp Bagnal Harvey. Latterly it was the boyhood home of singer Chris de Burgh and is still owned by his family.I myself come from strong Shelmalier blood, with a smattering of Forth blood in the mix..
