Other tune references that Meade gives for 'Johnson Boys' are:
Teddy Regan Songster 1861, p51.
Francis O'Neill 'O'Neill's Music of Ireland: Eighteen Hundred and Fifty Melodies' Bronx, NY, Lyon & Healy 1903. 'Finnigan's Wake' #265.
Frank Quinn 'Doran's Ass' recorded 10 Feb 1925 [Gnt 5667].
John McKenna & James Morrison 'Thady Regan' recorded ca Feb 1929 [Co 33342-F].
John McGettigan's Irish Minstrels 'The Star of Donegal' recorded 14 September 1936 [Bluebird B4999].
I should point out that the Meade, Spottswood, Meade biblio-discography documents only to the early 1940s.
