Melangell was a 7th century Irish princess who went to Wales to avoid an arranged marriage and became a saint. Legend tells of a miraculous rescue of a hare by Melangell; she was deemed to be the patron saint of hares – Melangell’s Lambs. The song evokes Melangell’s memory to argue for better treatment of animals.
