Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Ar Erin + Erin go Macree
Hi here's where I got to put it in my blog site. As usual I made some of it up ! Couldnt find the origin. Looks like an emigrant lament - just speculated the sea shore and the scenes of New York - a good candidate - maybe the only candidate is Rockaway Beach as has a huge Irish community by Irish descent 25% second largest in America (by proportion of the community according to a wiki link) - you can see the Manhattan skyline but was there one in the 19th century ? Help.
