GUEST,Big Tim Lyr Req: The Boys from the County Mayo (18) RE: Lyr Req: The Boys from the County Mayo 11 Nov 08


Martin,

As I think you now know, the song that you gave the link to, 'Banks of the Moy', is actually an old song and couldn't have been written by anybody still alive, Seamus O'Duffy or anyone else.

I have a copy of an old ballad sheet which gives the title as 'A New Song on Davitt's Lover's Lover's Lament on His Incarceration from the Banks of the Moy', by Mary Ward. I actually visited the Davitt Museum in Mayo a few years ago and gave them a copy of the ballad sheet. Mary Ward seems to be lost to history.
