Subject: RE: Tune Req: The Wexford Lovers
There are at least two songs of this title on 19 c. ballad sheets. James N Healy's "Old Irish Street Ballads Vol. 1". includes one with the story line and names you quote - or very similar. No tune given.

"Timmon"/"Tighmon" is probably Taghmon, not far from Wexford town.
