Thread Name: Lyr Req: Kishmules Galley? / Kishmul's Galley
Subject: RE: factory girls and Kishmules Galley lost lyric
The first line is actually "High on The Barra Quay" not Ben a Hayich. Kisimul Castle is located on the Isle of Barra as was the Galley itself.    It was the Chieftain of the MacNeill of Barra Clan that owned the Galley that was so famous for tormenting and raiding the English ships that dared sail past the Isle of Barra.
