Thread Name: Lyr Add: Daniel O'Connell and His Steam Engine
Subject: RE: Daniel O'Connell & His Steam Engine
Leeder's message "Yes, O.J. Abbott's version, titled "Daniel O'Connell", is in "Traditional Singers and Songs from Ontario", Folklore Associates/Burns & MacEachern (1965), p. 50, notes at p. 171.". 3 June 02.

Or you can just use "Larry O'Gaff" which you already have on other DT entries such as Squid Jigging Ground; you know there may be slight variations in tunes so maybe you would like to get the OJ Abbott version since that was where I learned the song - and most modern recordings of it use the same lyrics as were collected from Abbot in Canada even though different versions have been collected in Ireland.
