Thread Name: Origins: Hiring Fair at Hamiltonsbawn
Subject: RE: Hiring Fair At Hamiltonsbawn: Burnhouse?
Morton agrees that "Burnhouse (v.6), by the way, is a 'Knacker's Yard' near Belfast," but he makes no comment about relevant dates.
(couldn't Burnhouse be a generic name rather than a specific abattoir?)

Morton's other comments about hiring fairs belongs in the hiring fair thread rather than here (but not tonight ...)
