Glossary entry for
Raglan Road

Patrick Kavanagh is the original author of "On Raglan Road", contained in his The Complete Poems. His brother Peter footnotes the ballad thus:

Raglan Road: A street off Pembroke Road, Dublin. This ballad originally published in The Irish Press under the title "Dark Haired Miriam Ran Away". It was written about Patrick's girlfriend Hilda but to avoid embarrassment he used the name of my girl-friend in the title.
