Subject: RE: Macaronachas / Macaronic Songs. Language mixing
Pretty well all the macaronics on ballad sheets were done by Haly [Joseph] of Hanover Street, Cork. There is at least one printed by him entitled "The Flowers of Edinburgh" which has alternate verses in Irish and English - in the Bodleian Ballads - I only looked till I found one - there may be more.
