Follow me up to Carlow[edit]

No, I'll stick in Clonakilty, thanks all the same. Is this really a folk song? I've never heard it, but it looks like a 19thC nationalist sentimental "believe you me" composition. In the historical context, Cailin o cois tSuire me is a folk song, dating from the 16thC, but surely not this? To say it's folk must be like saying G.K. Chesterton's Lepanto poem represents the feelings of western Christians on the defeat of the Turks in 1572.--shtove 02:00, 7 December 2005 (UTC)

You've never heard "follow me up to Carlow"? Come on! Planxty among other tad groups sing/sang it. It was written in the 19c to a traditional air, but htat doesn't make it any less of a folk song at this stage. Jdorney
