Thread Name: Help: Origins of Carrickfergus
Subject: RE: Help: Origins of Carrickfergus
To be suspected of having written a song like Carrickfergus is the kind of criticism that I'd think SeŠn ” Sť, Dominic Behan or Peter O'Toole would not be wholly averse to.

There's still the interesting question how the song got from 1830 to Peter O'Toole without anyone else ever apparently collecting it or putting it in print.
