SueH Rocks of Bawn - any background info? (4) RE: Rocks of Bawn - any background info? 25 Aug 99

Hi Dave

All I can tell you is what it says on the Boys of The Lough CD, 'the west of Ireland':

'A Cavan song popular among Ulster traditional singers, including the well-known Fermanagh singer Paddy Tunney from whom Cathal learned it in the 1960s. The song was noted by Joyce and Colin O'Lochlainn and is also included in the great Ulster anthology "The Sam Henry Collection."'

I hope this helps!
