The accounts of Archer, Lynn, McCorley and their associates are in the Belfast Newsletter in late 1799 and early 1800. The date of McCorley's execution was reported as 28th February in page 3 of the issue of 4th March.There is an Index of the Newsletter 1737-1800 at Louisiana University.

There are two distinct songs, the Ethna Carbery one and another which is roughly contemporary with the events. The latter is in G-D Zimmermann Songs of Irish Rebellion.
