The Rebel Black Dot Irish Song o' the Day

Irish Tradition, "Loftus Jones" from Green Linnet Records: The Twentieth Anniversary Collection (The Last Angry Irishman)

Commentary: Is the reel "Loftus Jones" named after Commander Loftus Jones, V.C. (1879-1916), a Royal Navy officer who died in the Battle of Jutland? Loftus isn't the most common given name; so, the peculiar combination "Loftus Jones" being completely coincidence seems unlikely—not impossible, just unlikely.
