Thread Name: lyr req: Kemo Kimo?
Subject: Kemo Kimo?
Anyone have any idea as to how a character in an Irish play in 1903 would be singing the minstrel song, "Kemo, Kimo"? The character is a caricature of a "West-Briton" in a piece of nationalist propaganda (so generally made to look ridiculous), but I can't figure out how and why the song might have been current in Dublin at the time.

Any clues here would be greatly appreciated.
