Joe and Dan, You could of course be right about the Queens reference in the song, but since Parnell was housed in Kilmainham, which is in County Dublin (it's actually just a part of Dublin City now), the line still doesn't make much sense. I'm going to drop an email to Andy Stewart, through his new web site, and see if he'll tell me how the exact line reads and what it refers to. Besides being the Wizard's lead singer, he also wrote or arranged a lot of their tunes, so he should know. I'll post my answer, when I get one.
