12mo [approx 12.7x18.7cm]. MINT - a NEW copy. Black & white illustrations. 98 pages First published in 2004. Allen Mawer found John Doolan and confirmed that the song was right to say that he had been born in Castlemaine. Even more remarkably, Doolan's personal history had connections with the song. And how that came about was quite a story in itself. This revised edition incorporates additional family research by Joy Munns that has traced the last years of John Doolan's brief life after his release from Pentridge in 1882. It also updates research into the song, narrowing the date range for its creation and further undermining the argument for its Irish rather than Australian origin.
