Thread Name: Carolan or O'Carolan??
Subject: RE: Carolan or O'Carolan??
Carolan was O'Carolan's old man ;-)

I've seen both used for the same person - assuming you are referring to Turlough [O']Carolan the famous blind Irish harpist. A Google search will turn up references for both, referring to the same person. Maybe someone who knows will be able to give the definitive answer.
