I think you're wrong on this one Belfast! But why do you suggest Kearney?

The lyrics were also published in "The Rebels Ceilidh Songbook" - "as sung by Hugh MacDonald". Since this was a Scots publication, a little folkie bible for a while, it may well be where Hall and McGregor got it.

Kathleen, thank you for the information about your father. Can you tell us more? It's an excellent song.
