A definitive copy of the original poem SHE MOVED THROUGH THE FAIR has been posted here, copied via Google Book Search from Wild Earth and Other Poems, by Padraic Colum, New York: H. Holt, 1916, page 26.
Another good copy, from The New Oxford Book of Irish Verse, was posted by nutty here.
Other versions, all more or less corrupted (or folk-processed, if you prefer), are posted here: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve.
There is a Gaelic version here.
Les Barker's parody is here.
