Thread Name: Lyr Req: Connolly Was There
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Song about James Connolly
Re the "Galvin" JC song, Christy Moore credits it to Galvin ok but Galvin himself makes no claim to it in his own book "Irish Songs of Resistance" which includes the song. Any ideas?

Interesting to note JC on JL, as quoted by Ruth Dudley Edwards "the man is utterly unreliable...he does not seem to want a Democratic Labour Movement but a Larkinite Movement only. He is consumed with jealously and hatred of anyone who will not cringe to him". True or false? I'm not a fan of RDE but JC must actually have said this.
