Quick Reference

The sailor's name in the old days of sail for salt beef that was kept at sea in a harness cask and that was tougher than usual. Its name was probably based on the belief in those days that the Irish, being so poor, worked their horses much harder and longer than the English. There was a sailor's sea song of the 18th century in which he addressed his ration of salt beef:Salt horse, salt horse, what brought you here? You've carried turf for many a year.From Dublin quay to Ballyack You've carried turf upon your back.
