Subject: RE: Folklore: Sean O Farrell,
My information comes from countysongs.ie which gives some background to the song. The town of Granard gives no information at all of 1798 uprising although there was a harp festival there in the early 1790s. Interesting. Can only suggest more detailed information may be available from locals or historical records. Best of luck.
