Don't know why this system keeps referring to me as a GUEST...I'm just a very new member.


Where did you find the copy of the book about Parnell? Have you read the one called KITTY O'SHEA (Kitty was a name she hated to be called...the press gave it to her)? The entire story of her relationship with JSP was so very sad.

I agree about "corrections" to the lyrics of folk songs. There really isn't such a thing...they're all just variations on a theme, so-to-speak.


That one line that you've been discussing is the main reason why I asked about the lyrics in the first place. Just could not make sense of it. With the word Queens, I still can't, unless it was a reference to Queen Victoria. Parnell wasn't held in Kilmainham for very long, only a few days. In that place, any amoung of time would have been horrible!
