There is another song on subject of Parnell called the "Blackbird of Sweet Avondale" sung by Geordie Hanna on a Topic CD Celtic Voices, although there he's listed as George whereas I usually see him listed as Geordie.

It's based, I beieve on a Jacobite song The Royal Blackbird but with Parnell symbolised as The Blackbird rather than James Stewart
