LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Grotto in Grange Park
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who contributed in any way to the recent maintenance of the grotto in Grange Park.

This time around I'm writing from the southern hemisphere, reading my Douglas Weekly in the sun and thoroughly enjoying the read. I am blown away by this Hudson Car Article, how unique. Absolutely amazing that a car such as this is taking up residence in Douglas, and a nice history lesson to go with it. Keep up the good work.....long live the 'Douglas Weekly'
'The Irish Rover' ?
Hello from England.
Can any Douglas Weekly reader help an ex-Cobh man in his quest? I am trying to trace any history of the song 'The Irish Rover'.
When was it written? Who wrote it? Is there an 'official' version? I have seen that many verses, and versions of them, it's hard to decide if there is a definitive version at all !!
Coming from Cork I suppose I should know, but I've never had to research it before! Thanks to anyone who may be of assistance.
