This song that many here on Mudcat have become bored with has according to MCPS in England sold in different formats, The Dubliners, Clancy Brothers, Foster and Allen, Ray Stevens, The Irish Rovers, Brendan Grace, and many others,Has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide, the song is recorded somehere in the world nearly every week.
Publisher, CELTIC MUSIC, DAVE BULMER, WRITER, PAT COOKSEY, Celtic Music, ie, Bulmer and Sharpley have taken every penny generated from this song.
Regardless of the catalogue Bulmer owms, this song is his biggest income, collected by Meil Sharpley, Louth, Lincolshire.
Needless to say Cooksey, the composer of the song gets nothing, English folk music is indeed sinking to new depths, to tolerate this behavior.
