Thread Name: Lyr Req: Nancy Spain (Barney Rush)
Subject: RE: Nancy Spain (History)
In "The Christy Moore Songbook " (1984), Moore writes:

"I first heard this song in 1968 in Jersey in the Channel Islands where it was sung by the author Barney Rush, originally from Sallynoggin (in Dublin) but now living in Germany. Barney recorded it for me and I had the tape in a drawer for about ten years before I started to sing it.I suppose it has become the best known song in my repertoire"

The suggested association is unlikely
