Thread Name: ADD/Origins: The Foggy Dew (Fr. O'Neill)
Subject: RE: The Foggy Dew
was cruisin' the site (I'm a 1st timer) and saw the question about Cathal Brugha. Maelgwyn and BB-- Cathal Brugha was involved in the 1916 Easter Rebellion; He sided with De Valera against Michael Collins when the Irish voted on free state status vs. independence. Cathal Brugha was killed during the Irish Civil War--I think around 1922 or so. Hope that helped.
