GUEST,Ellen Origins: Moses Ri-Tooral-I-Ay (59* d) RE: Origins: Moses Ri-Tooral-I-Ay 27 Dec 05


Hi I know I'm late to the party. I notice references here to the "Clancy's". However there is a version of the song by Margaret Barry, a ballad singer. She was known in the 20s, 30s and 40s and earned her wages singing at fairs on the west coast of Eire -- though Alan Lomax did finally do proper recordings of her in the 50s -- they're a bit crude but nonetheless charming.   It makes me think the references to banning Irish are about the time during the elder lord major Briscoe's office. (Shorlly after 1916?). Llanguage might still have been a hot topic then.
