"Boolavogue" is a famous Irish ballad commemorating the Irish Rebellion of 1798. It was composed by Patrick Joseph McCall in 1898, for the centenary of the Rebellion issued Irish Noíníns (Dublin 1894).

Father John Murphy of the town of Boolavogue in County Wexford led his parishioners in routing the Camolin Cavalry on 26 May 1798. The Wexford insurgents were eventually defeated at the Battle of Vinegar Hill on 21 June and Father Murphy and the other rebel leaders were hanged.

McCall, who also composed the popular Irish ballads "Kelly the Boy from Killanne" and "Follow Me up to Carlow", wrote "Boolavogue" to the old Irish air "Eochaill" ("Youghal Harbour"). The tune had previously been used in the Australian traditional song "Moreton Bay", about an Irish convict's travails in Australia, and was also used by Seán Ó Riada as part of the film score for Mise Éire (1959). The song is inspired by songs contemporary to the events of 1798 such as Come All You Warriors.

Father Murphy was a local priest who at first tried to persuade people not to take part in the rebellion. He changed his opinion and became a reluctant rebel leader after soldiers burnt down the homes of some of his parishioners while searching for rebels. The main antagonist of the song, Lieutenant Thomas Bookey, was the leader of the Yeoman Cavalry in the Boolavogue area.

Although this work was originally written for Folk Instruments & Voice, I created this arrangement for Celtic or Concert (Pedal) Harp.
