May 6, 1882: "The Phoenix Park murders": an assassination in Dublin of the British chief secretary
of Ireland, Lord Frederick Cavendish, and his under secretary, T.H. Burke by members of a nationalist
secret society, the Invincibles. "Skin the Goat" Fitzharris was the cabman who drove them to and from the
Park.

        Carey told on 'Skin the Goat,'
        O'Donnell put him on the boat
        He wished he'd never been afloat, the dirty skite
        It wasn't very sensible to tell on the Invincibles
        They took aboard the principals, day and night.

                "Take Me Up to Monto," words & music by George Hodnett, 1958

No relation, Allen. Monto concerns events from, say, 1880 to as late as 1920.   Mostly 1882.

There's several discussions in the Forum, primarily: http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=36178, a considerable mass on the song and I've organized and summarized it for myself and "Big Tim" of Mudcat if'n your interested.
