Now I'm thinking the fact that those notations I mentioned are not present accounts for the bold type and underlining.
Anyway, Philippa also states, "If you have access to old copies of the Journal of the Folk Song Society you might look up: Níl shé 'na lá| Ní Shé 'Na Lá [It is not day yet]; JFSS 24, p. 257, 1921" I thought I had found that, too, but it turns out that the site only presents the title of that particular song. Still, there's some Journal of the Folk Song Society content there which people might like to look through - here.
