it's sung by almost everybody, very popular in Scotland as well, Sam Henry collected it and wrote a little about it. It also appears in the Journal of the Irish Folk Song Society. Issues #1-1904 #57 & 58; don't know how much information is there though. it is thoroughly traditional I should think, curious to know where it is first recorded, ballet sheet perhaps
