  • Polka, a central European folk dance. It is perhaps worth noting that the song "The Rakes of Mallow" (about the aristocracy of Mallow, possibly including the Jephson-Norreys of Mallow Castle) is a polka (http://www.thesession.org/tunes/display/85). Norreys is the name of one of the, "four hoarsemen on their apolkaloops" in FW.
