Thread Name: Lyr Req: Blue Hills of Antrim
Subject: RE: Blue Hills of Antrim
Yes, thanks Ard; lyrics by Joseph Campbell (1879-1944) of Belfast who also wrote My Lagan Love and Gartan Mother's Lullaby, among many, many more poems. Presumably a trad melody (collected by Herbert Hughes, Francis Joseph Bigger and John Campbell (Joe's brother)in Donegal in August 1903, very lovely.)
