GUEST,Toenails John Lyr Add: The Man from Tralee (Martyn Travis) (29) RE: Lyr Add: The Man From Tralee (Martyn Travis) 11 Oct 04

This song is HUGELY popular around the area of Dunmore East, Co. Waterford Irl, as it was popularised by a young local fisherman, who was the only man, ever to sing it that I knew of, untill his tragic death on board his own fishing vessell.

It has always been locally credited to him, but i know not if he was "Martyn Travis" or not

It may just be the fact that he sung it, and giving the circumstances surrounding his drowning, he became immortalised in the song, but will ask questions around, and let you know any details. I first heard him singing this song about 12 13 years ago,

Thanks for the words by the way, I've wanted them for years. Brilliant song
