"Belfast Mill" has been recorded by Jane Cassidy and Maurice Leyden as "Belfast Mill (Aragon Mill by Si Kahn, Joe Hill Music 1974)". The album is "Mary Ann McCracken 1770-1866". The notes state "this beautiful song has been adapted into the local song tradition under the title Belfast Mill ...to describe Mary Ann's involvement in the [Belfast]textile industry". (Mary Ann McCracken was an employer, but a very enlightened one).
