           This song refers to Feilimí Cam Ó Baoill, (Phelim O’Boyle) a chieftain of the Rosses in Co Donegal in the 17th
           century. He had to flee to the Islands off the coast of Donegal to escape his fueding archenemy Maolmhuire an Bhata
           Bhuí Mac Suibhne. Tory Island is further offshore and seemed safer than Gola, but his little boat wrecked on the rocks.
