Central Ohio Irish Pubs

Sellsius° Blog had a photo of Dan Donnelly’s arm on their site last year. Just Dan Donnelly’s arm. It’s mummified.

Dan Donnelly was a boxer. I guess he had a great arm?

The Irish Examiner an American Irish Newspaper shared these lyrics about Dan Donnelly’s arm when it was attached to the rest of him:

“Come all ye true born Irishmen
And listen to me song
And hould your wrist and clench your fist,
For that won’t take ye long

While I a song ufold to ye,
Sung wid joyish Irish air,
It’s about the Cooper-Dan Donnelly fight,
On the Curragh of Kildare.

The three loud cheers for our own Dan
And the way he fought today,
And another cheer for the Englishman,
Who Couldn’t have his way.

And another cheer for the lady fair,
Who had bet her last half crown
As an Irish flag fluttered high in air
And the Union Jack went down.

Oh, Sir Dan was brave and true as gold
And he fought like an Irish knight,
Till the tale of victory was told,
In the bonfires burning light.

Now, before Dan gleams the Emerald sod,
Of Ireland brightened by the sun,
Now he sees again the smiles of god,
Now he hears the brooklets laughing run.

He fought for Ireland and her weal
He did his best to carve a name,
With grimy hands and heart of steel,
Upon the rocky walls of fame.

For gold the merchant ploughs the manor,
But glory is Dan’s only prize,
His wealth is honor.

So here’s to Dan, our noblest son,
No other need him dare,
For today he made the English run
On the Curragh of Kildare.”

Sellsius° Blog’s Legendary Boxer’s Arm Arrives in New York, Alone

Dan’s arm can be seen in a glass case in The Hideout Bar in Kilcullen, Co. Kildare. What does all that have to do with Central Ohio Irish Pubs? Nothing.

Brazenhead is based on a pub in Limerick?

Brazenhead Irish Pub – Dublin
“Why the name Brazenhead, you ask? Well although the story is unreliable, it is likely that the name of the original bar was derived from another tavern in Limerick called “At The Sign of The Brazen Head”, so named for a red headed girl who watched the siege of Limerick from the same spot many years before.” She lost her head?

G rated St. Patricks’s Day I have Limerick’s writtten by Central Ohio kids for the Columbus Dispatch on Discover Columbus…
