I can't believe that I haven't seen any mention of Steeleye Span's rendering of "Skewball" (Not the US Stewball). It's on their Ten Man Mop album.

I don't know if it can be obtained these days (I live Down Under), but my late father, The Irish Actor Noel Purcell, recorded a 6-kleenex monologue called 'Pretty Polly', about an old Dublin Hackney driver and his equally old Polly. If it is available, it was recorded on the Glenside Label by Walton's of Dublin in the '50s. I had a 78, but it broke!
