I was referring to the other version of the song "clear is the water that flows from the Boyne" when referring to the lack of Irishness in the song.

Remember ....a lot of Scots also emigrated."

Sorry, Nutty, but when you linked to my site and quoted the lyrics there, I took it to mean there was "not an Irish connection in sight" at GEST Songs Of Newfoundland And Labrador.

As Malcolm Douglas points out, Scottish, French, English, Irish and so many other nationalties make Newfoundland a truly rich source of many "borrowed" traditionals. :-)
