Subject: RE: Origins: Edward the Beauty and Boast of Athlone
I recall hearing it in Tom Mc Hale's Folkclub in Athlone many years ago sung, I think, by Tony Holleran (of Caherlistrane, originally) - and/or by Pauline Sweeney. I know that Pauline had/has a number of Siney Crotty's songs so it's quite possible that he's the source in this case.
In recent years, I think I've heard Cathal McConnell sing a version.
