For two undated songsheets, see Bodleian Library Broadside Ballads:

The blind Irish girl

The first was printed on green paper and the digital image is unreadable, but it is noted as 'Performer: Donnelly, R.' This is Robert Donnelly, who apparently also wrote it. It seems first to have been published around 1895. Donnelly also wrote, among other things, the words of 'Don't Go Down in the Mine, Dad'.
