Re: "Patrick Sheehan"/ "Glen of Aherlow" above:

St. Paul (Minn.) Daily Globe (Dec. 16, 1885), p. 8:

“I could lie on my narrow hammock and hear him, from an adjoining cell [in the Hennepin Co. jail], trilling forth that fine old Irish ballad, ‘The Glen of Aherloe [sic].'"

Kickham's lyrics appeared in the New York World (Dec. 26 *and* Dec. 30, 1865, as an example of a Fenian song), and, anonymously without comment or context, in the Denver Rocky Mountain News (Feb. 14, 1866).
