Subject: RE: Origins: Edward the Beauty and Boast of Athlone
I've just found this thread again after a fresh internet search- I was still under the impression it was a largely unknown song.

Great to hear there is a bit more known history to it now, thanks so much.

There's a pub recording of Siney Crotty singing this, stored at the British Library but I can't get it to play :
Edward the Beauty and Boast of Athlone / Siney Crotty

Can also view the Xml file but I don't know what to do with it.

It's a singular tune, not used for any other song as far as I know.

Anyone any ideas how I can hear this??
