Thread Name: DTStudy Donnybrook Fair / Widdecombe Fair
Subject: RE: DTStudy Donnybrook Fair
Just to note: 'Donnybrook Fair' - NOT a trad version - was recorded in the 1960s by the Irish group 'Dr Strangely Strange' on their 'Kip of the Serenes' LP.

If 'The Fair it refers to took place outside Dublin and was finally disbanded in 1855' some memory of it still remained for over a century, unless it also gave its name to a place.
