bilby commented on the word muroo
Backstory: Ned Kelly was a famous Australian bushranger (outlaw) of the 1800's, of Irish descent, Therefore I guess it's plausible that muroo might be of Irish derivation.

This word was used by Ned Kelly in his famous Jerilderie letter: "as soon as I am dead they will be heels up in the muroo", 'they' being police employed to catch him.
No one knows for sure what he meant (I once consulted the Macquarie Dictionary people in Sydney) but my guess is he meant horse manure or muddy paddock. Here's a link to the original letter and transcript: http://wiki.prov.vic.gov.au/index.php/Jerilderie_Letter
