Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Saint Patrick Was a Gentleman
Interesting that this "admirable national lyric" was made by prosperous Gentlemen from Cork, and that the comedian who sang it was the "popular representative of Irish characters on the stage".
To tell the truth, I first encountered this at the age of twelve, and thought it trivial doggerel then. "Bould Thady Quill" is a small cut above, in my own view of course.
