Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Arkle (Dominic Behan)
Snuffy,
Dominic wrote Arkle pre 1965 when it was published. This was before the Dubliners recorded Master McGrath.
His comment on Master McGrath which is also in Ireland Sings is 'The first battle of any importance the Irish won on English soil' hence his comment on Arkle.
