This is the song of the O'Mahony clan - possibly more info if you look into the history around Dunloe Dan"

The Dromore Castle at Kenmare was owned by the O'Mahonys up until quite recently. Specifically by the man who won Wimbledon for Ireland in 1896. His tennis court and net were still there up to a couple of years ago when I visited and may still be there.
