O'Boyle Lyr Req: Biddy McGrath (25) RE: Biddy McGrath 01 Mar 99


Fyi: you all are correct. In irish, "McGrath" is most times pronounced "McGraw". This also applies to the songs "Mrs Mcgrath" and "Master McGrath". Thus explaining in the latter song such lines/rhymes as "For you nobles of England we don't care a straw/ Here's 5000 to 1 on Master McGrath."
