Thread Name: Who wrote 'Young Ned of the Hill'
Subject: RE: Who wrote 'Young Ned of the Hill'
I have a facsimile edition of "O'Neills Music of Ireland" as published in 1903. I have played the song "Ned of the Hill - Eadmon Cnuick" from it, and it sounds nothing like the Pogues' tune.

I think it can safely be said that "Young Ned of the Hill" by the Pogues is an original, modern piece of music.
