This article critically examines the claim of other authors (James S. Donnelly, Patrick J. Corish, Roy Foster, S.J. Connolly, Joseph Coohill, Stephen Howe) that the cry 'Long live King George the 3d and Queen Sive' was commonly heard during the first wave of Whiteboy unrest (1761-5) and should be regarded as an expression of loyalty to the reigning monarch on the part of the Whiteboys. It is argued, first, that the evidence of such a cry being uttered by the Whiteboys is weak; secondly, that the cry, if ever uttered, is unlikely to have been an expression of loyalty to George III; and, thirdly, that the evidence of verse in Irish associated with the Whiteboy movement leaves little doubt that the political orientation of those involved was Jacobite rather than Hanoverian.
