Hi,

Thanks Steve, for getting that srt8- haha.

I do have a general question regarding broadside The Lass of Ocram c. 1740 (or 1765)and the related versions titled The Lass of Aughrim.

I know The Lass of Aughrim (Child version H) from Mr. G.C. Mahon, of Ann Arbor, Michigan, as sung by a laborer, at Tyrrelspass, West Meath, Ireland, about 1830 is similar to The Lass of Ocram.

Are there other traditional Irish versions titled The Lass of Aughrim or that use those lyrics? I know Joe Heaney's "Lord Gregory" uses the The Lass of Aughrim.

Am I missing the lineage? Waht are the collected versions?
