A Conversation for The Legend and History of the Song 'Danny Boy'
"Danny Boy" and blind harpers
morva_marsh Started conversation Feb 8, 2010
I'm a bit confused and feel overwhelmed by the number of blind harpers in Ireland's history. Perhaps it's my lack of understanding about how the Irish language is pronounced, but does Turlough O'Carolan fit into this article at all? Could he be Blind Rory O'Cahan, and I'm just mis-pronouncing the name of O'Carolan? I'm an author and have been using O'Carolan's name and historical character, but if I've got it wrong, I certainly want to correct it (none of which really has a thing to do with the song. . .)
