Subject: Lyr Req: o'grady drove the car (Sligo song)
From: GUEST
Date: 12 May 13 - 12:58 PM

Hello


I am trying to locate the lyrics of a song that goes by the name of "O'Grady Drove The Car"


It was written circa 1920 by Tom O'Donnell from Mullaghroe, Co. Sligo


The subject matter is about an ambush in Killaraght, Co. Sligo.


Can anybody help me out with this one!?

Thanks

Alan

Where are you based? Local singers with local knowledge are probably your best bet:

Sligo Traditional Singers Circle are active and have both a Facebook page and website.

If you google the phrase you get a Sligo historic pdf that tells you who wrote it and why, maybe some clues there? My rectangle is not adept at cut&paste.

Thanks, Mrrzy - I missed that! The PDF is an account of the War of Independence in the area (1919-21) and simply states that a Tom O'Donnell wrote such a song. It may well be our GUEST's starting point. Given the area involved, the Sligo singers group is definitely worth checking - if this query isn't one of them broadening a search!

Click here for the pdf which is free e-book version of a book published about twenty years ago.

Regards
