Would anybody know the origins of this song, and its author? The only thing I can find so far is: "A traditional song, believed to have been written in 1810 by a native of Kerry, it was first published by E. Walsh in 1847. Tradition attributes it to a young man's secret love for his brother's bride: Too poor to support her and too shy to propose, he had gone abroad to seek his fortune. But when he returned to claim his beloved, he found her married to his brother. He wrote this song for her but, for obvious reasons, refused to reveal her name." (

Is it "For Ireland I'd Not Tell Her Name"? Lots of threads on that song including this one.
