I found a version adapted by "The Clancy Bros.",in their collection titled "The Irish SongBook",put out by OAK Publications. You should be able to find a copy in any Music Shop or Library that deal's with Traditional Music of Ireland. You can DEFINITELY get a copy from WALTON'S,in Ireland.They have an outlet in the USA, someplace in New York, but I have'nt got the address. Walton's is:WALTON Mfg. Ltd.,River Valley House,Kylemore Park South,Ballyfermot,Dublin 10,Ireland. If I had a fax machine and knew your e-mail,I'd send it to you. I'll be at NEFFA with Barry Finn.I'll copy the song and keep it in my Concertina case,in case I run into you. The song is from the 1798 Rising,and was written by Robert Dwyer Joyce,who fled Ireland and came to the US. He died after returning to Ireland, in 1883.I've an extensive collection,and so far that is all I found. Slainn ga faol, Neil
