   Ref post #795, punch cartoon.

  "Come back to erin mavoureen" was a popular irish love song of the time, written by poet & composer Charlotte Alington Barnard. The words of the song are not too difficult to find on the net, though I too can't see how they relate to the picture.

The Empress loved Ireland as she found the terrain even more exciting for hunting than that in England. She would have gone there far more often but for the fact that Franz-Joseph warned her that as a representative of a Catholic realm she would have to be careful not to appear to take sides in the English-Irish disputes, especially as home rule was being debated at that time, and not to offend Queen Victoria and the British parliament, who did not approve of her visiting Ireland.

The Irish were enchanced by the Empress and very disappointed when she stopped travelling to Ireland and returned to England instead, hence the text of the Punch cartoon, which  rather aptly describes the situation. I'm surprised that people failed to see how it related to the picture!

Sisi was a rebel, so the Hungarians was such a magnet to her. The Irish was rebelling under English rule, The Empress found it romantic.

It was the "sick session" taken when she looked puffy.
