Thread Name: Meaning of 'The Coolin'
Subject: RE: Meaning of 'The Coolin'
Carroll Malone's (J T Campion) poem was "The Coolin Forbidden". It's in D F Mc Carthy's "The Book of Irish Ballads" (1869 - not sure if it's in the original 1846 version). Ferguson's six verses are also there.

These Coolin threads are getting very confused. Methinks we need an edited thread to pull things together.


ps. Mangan has a three verse version. His notes refer to Furlongs translation as given in Hardiman.
