title Larry Gorman and "Monaghan's Raffle"
creator Rankin, Robert A.
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description It may seem peculiar to some that Larry Gorman, the notorious nineteenth-century Island songmaker, is as well remembered in his native Prince County as the Yeos, Popes, Myricks, Holmans, and other contemporary figures who occupied real positions of economic and political power over that part of Prince Edward Island. Upon close examination, however, this should come as no surprise, given the power of spontaneous satirical verse which Gorman possessed. One of his songs, a previously unpublished fragment known as "Monaghan's Raffle," illustrates precisely the reasons for his notoriety.
