Other songs make reference to the scandal. In "come out ye black and tans" one line reads, "Let us hear you tell, how you slandered great Parnell, When you got him well and truly persecuted." Also in the James Joyce book, "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" the story begins shortly after Parnell's death and there are some wonderfully written scenes dramitizing the debate.
