boglion Origins: Sean South of Garryowen (138* d) RE: Origins: Sean South of Garryowen 05 Dec 02

Two things I've always wondered about with Sean South were

1) How did he get such a diverse band of men together? The song suggests there were men from every second county in Ireland! In my experience the Irish tend to be more parochial than this. A Kerryman for example would not trust a Corkman further than he could tip him with a hurley.

2) Was there really someone from Tyrone or was he invented to neatly rhyme with Garryowen?
