Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Come Down the Mountain Katie Daly (O'Shea
Katie Daly was written and sung by my uncle Eamonn O'Shea , real name Herman Weight. Although his name is German, it was deemed more appropriate to use an Irish name. The name Katie Daly was based on his wife's aunt in America at the time whose name was Kay Daly.
