Glossary entry for
Patrick Kavanagh is the original author of "On Raglan
Road", contained in his The Complete Poems. His brother Peter footnotes the
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.
