The Rose of Allandale was written by Charles Jeffreys (1807-1865) who was English. To suggest that the song is anything to do with Charles Stuart Parnell and Katey O'Shea ... their famous affair was 1882-1889... years after Jeffries died is just plain rediculous. There are several copies of this popular broadside ballad in the Bodleian Libary that were printed in the early 1800's ... probably even before Parnell was born in 1846. (in Avondale not Allandale)
