Subject: RE: Tune Req: Derry Down
Here's one strong probability. Bert set La Pique to DD and Ewan set Dreadnought to it, both in the 50s, and Stan latched on to this.

A lot of the history of the tune is covered in Simpson and in Catskills.
I'm basically pulling it together and adding a long list of examples in an appendix.
