A surmise or a hunch. Fruitful research often starts this way. Margaret Maguire was 13 years the senior of Dominick Jnr. and a music teacher. If one assumes as I do that she is the most likely source of the song first attributed to her brother, then learning a little bit more about her - if possible - might throw some further light on the origins of the song.
Better to light a candle than curse the dark.
