Thread Name: Roddy McCorley: date of origin ?
Subject: Roddy McCorley: date of origin ?
I know the song "Roddy McCorley" is about the 1798 Rebellion. Does anyone know when the actual song is dated from? Would it be authentic to sing this 'as an Irishman' at Civil War re-enactments ? Any thoughts at all would be appreciated.
