There's a version sung by Brendan Behan as well. It's on a CD called Brendan Behan Sings Irish Folksongs & Ballads. He was performing live, and breaks off every now and again to explain references: "The Fenians, by the way, were an Irish revolutionary group, formed in New York, of all places..."
He has other nice songs on it - a beautiful version of The Coolin (An Chúlfhionn), his own The Old Triangle, Preab san Ól, etc.
