Thank you very much, Jim.
I'm not (yet) registered on mudcat, so I can't send private messages, but I could contact you via email, my email address is

By the way, does the booklet say anything about where Róise learned the song?
I'm curious, "Lovers' Well" is obviously a (lovely, I have to admit) mishearing of Louisville and it also mentions Michigan, so it seems to be an American version that somehow ended up in the repertoire of a traditional Irish singer.
