Thread Name: Welcoming Paddy Home - Composer?
Subject: RE: Welcoming Paddy Home - Composer?
John Moulden on a 2000 thread:

"'Welcome poor Paddy Home' went from Willie McElroy to Cathal McConnell to everybody else."

He mentions songs written "in the past fifteen years," but it's not clear whether he means to include this one.

Elsewhere, Malcolm Douglas located McElroy in "Brookborough, County Fermanagh." He also sang "The Hills of Donegal."
