Thread Name: Origins: Bantry Girl's Lament
Subject: RE: Origins: Bantry Girls lament
To the best of my knowledge "Bantry Girls Lament" is from Wexford.
In reference to the Wexford Baronies I would like to point out that the Barony of Bargy is not pronounced BARJEE as many non Wexfordmen, including Luke Kelly, sing it.( as in Kelly the boy from Kilanne.) but Bargee with a softer G. Hope this makes sense . Bargy Castle once home of Begnal Harvey of '98 fame was the boyhood home of Chris de Burgh .
