Aw come on.
Of course doney-gal is just a reference to the beloved of all, Donegal. The original of the Lomax song recorded by Sylvia etc was "I'm alone in Donegal in the wind and hail." Who has not been?
Other more recent favourites that have been transcribed badly include The Munster Mash, and On A Clare Day You Can See Rostrevor.
