Thread Name: Origins: Tim Finnegan's / Finigan's Wake
Subject: RE: Biddy O'Brien and Tim Finnegan?
As I pointed out an an earlier thread, "Finnegan's Wake" was written by John F. Poole sometime before 1864, so I have grave doubts we can get any direct testimony on the subject. (Laws at Q17 doesn't note author.)
