Well, I don't believe it. Twelve hits so far and not a mention of the Irish. Never heard of the song before but sure it must have come from Ireland. DUN is the Irish word for FORT and NI (pronounced nee) is the Irish word for daughter. Sure isn't it plain to be seen that it refers to the daughter of some high rankin' officer at some Fort or other.
