Subject: RE: Lyr Req: avondale
Susanne: do you have the words of "Sean South"? I've never heard of it. Anyone know anything about Sean Costelloe, the composer of "Sean South of Garryowen"? (I've asked this before, to no avail).

Jim: Are you sure DB wrote "Connolly Was There"? I posted the lyrics on Mudcat a couple of months ago, with no idea who wrote it, transcribed from an anon rebel CD compilation.(I don't think it's much of a song but someone wanted the words, Connolly still awaits the great, and deserved, ballad). Kathleen, "The Mother of All the Behans", has given my favourite description of Connolly,amid all the propaganda and hype, "a wee fat man with a big moustache")!! By the way, Dom's brother Brian has already said some awful (but hilarious) things about Dom, and Brendan and Patrick Kavanagh,)in "The Brothers Behan" - 1998). I think anything you might write would be tame by comparison. (If anyone wants a few examples, come back). Regards, BT.
