Patrick Joseph McCall was a musician best remembered for his epic ballad of the Insurrection of 1798, “Boolavogue.” His ballads stand as the soundtrack for much of the history of the area, and his life, both in music and through his efforts to change the lives of Dublin’s poor, stands as a monument to a man dedicated to others. In this volume, Liam Gaul, author of several previous books on Irish music history, records the life and work of P.J. McCall, artist and poet, and his influence on the Irish musical tradition.
