X: 18 T:O'Leary's Ireland M:4/4 L:1/8 C:Ed Reavy R:Reel N:Yeats wrote about John O'Leary in his poem, N:"September 1913." At that time, Ed had just N:left Ireland, because his parents saw no N:future in the farm and no real opportunities there N:for their six children. The poet mourns the N:passing of O'Leary in the N:1913 poem and the passing, too, N:of all the things O'Leary stood for: N:"Romantic Ireland's dead and gone, N:It's with O'Leary in the grave." N:Ed believed in O'Leary-and in Emmet and N:Tone. This reel celebrates N:their Ireland: O'Leary's Ireland.
