Matthew Edwards Lyr Req: Mrs Mulligan Nearly Wins the Sweep (7) RE: Lyr Req: Mrs Mulligan Nearly Wins the Sweep 14 Sep 12

A search in the invaluable catalogue of sound recordings at the Irish Traditional Music Archive suggests that this was one of a series of comic songs and sketches by Jimmy O'Dea and Harry O'Donovan, and issued on 10" 78 records mainly by Parlophone in London, and by Regal Zonophone in Dublin.

From the holdings in the archive it seems the series includes:

Biddy Mulligan the Pride of the Coombe
Mrs Mulligan at the Telephone/ Vitamens
Mrs Mulligan at the Racecourse
Mrs Mulligan at the Abbey Theatre
Mrs Mulligan in Court
Mrs Mulligan at the Talkies/Mrs Mulligan in the Tram
Mrs Mulligan's Mother-in-Law/The Next Train
Mrs Mulligan's Sheiks/Mrs Mulligan Records Her Vote
Mrs Mulligan Wins the Sweep/McGilligan's Youngest Daughter Maggie May
Mrs Mulligan in London/Mrs Mulligan on Weddings
Mrs Mulligan and Charlie/Mrs Mulligan Buys a Turkey
Mrs Mulligan and the Motor Car/Mickey at Ellis Island
Mrs Mulligan at the Pawnshop/Irish Jaunting Car
Sweet Daffodil Mulligan/Fresh Fish
Mulligan Versus McIlhagga/Proposing
Mulligans and the McGilligans
Queens of the Bucket and Brush/Mrs Mulligan's Motor Car
Home with the Milk/Mrs Mulligan Takes a Lodger
Evicting Mrs Mulligan/Copper and the Lad
The Charladies' Ball [featuring Mrs Mulligan "the belle of the ball"]

I wonder whether the world is ready for a CD reissue of Mrs Mulligan's adventures.
