PADDY KAVANAGH'S WHORE



Ronnie Drew performed this song regularly, about the poet and song writer Patrick Kavanagh. Paddy wrote the song about himself, on how he should be remembered when he died.




The article in the link below proclaims Hilda O'Malley as the inspiration of the Patrick Kavanagh song Raglan Road.

I have been accused by an Fear Rua in rather personal terms of insulting both Kavanagh and O'Malley. Aside from the fact that I do not accept that O'Malley is the person in question, I have found that prostitutes are among the finest women I have ever met. I say women because I have not employed the services of male prostitutes yet. They say, never say never but in this instance it is highly unlikely, unless of course modern surgery deceives me.

@IrishBlog I always listen to the song properly

@IrishBlog You're wrong. You're insulting Kavanagh and Hilda O'Malley, the woman in the song. Plus making a complete ass of yourself.


So who we may ask is the prostitute that inspires Kavanagh in this beautiful song. I believe the whore in question is to be found in the following link. When Britain withdrew from Ireland, its first of numerous colonies world wide, it ensured it left behind an obedient client state, as it did with all its colonies and it taught the Americans how do the same in a neo colonial way, as in Iraq today promoting division and civil war as one of its tools brutality. Dublin 4 was a critical part of the obedient client free State of southern Ireland as is Stormont today in the northern part of occupied Ireland.

This is the link to where Kavanagh's whore can be found. I hope our friend the Fear Rua reads it more carefully than he has read or listened to the lines of Kavanagh's song.

The O'Malley name has profound respect in the west of Ireland. From Ernie O'Malley's the rebel's family in Mayo to the O'Malley's of Limerick. Indeed a certain Grace O'Malley ruled the west coast of Ireland for many decades as the British feared her incessant "piracy". She is held in the same reverence as Roisin Dubh, Grainneuaille, Sile Na Ghig, etc,. who were not all, I assure you were nuns, fortunately.

Here I present to you, Paddy Kavanagh's or the Monaghan boy's whore.
