It would certainly be very interesting to know the source of Galvin's 'old version 1798'. However, as much as I respect the achievements of Patrick Galvin (born 1930?), especially with 'Raggy Boy', he was a quite young and inexperienced man when he wrote 'Irish Songs of Resistance' (and recorded those 'rebel' LPs, which I have, on tape only). His book is full of great songs but also of quite iffy scholarship, IMO.
