John Duggan wrote a song called GOLDEN DREAMS, but I couldn't find any lyrics, so I suppose we don't know for certain that this is song our guest is looking for.

As sung by Brian Coll on "At Home in Ireland" (2009).
Seven years I spent in Galway City,
Seven years of happiness and pain,
For I loved a lady from the mountains.
Now I know we'll never meet again.
She had eyes like pearls from the ocean,
And she moved as graceful as the fawn,
But she loved her hills of Connemara,
And her heart was anchored on Benbaun [or "Binn Bhán"].
CHORUS: Golden dreams are all I have to cling to,
Golden memories of Galway Bay,
Where I met my Mary from the mountains,
And she stole my foolish heart away.
Often times when shades of night were falling,
Hand in hand we'd wander through Salthill.
Now she's gone and left me for her homeland,
But in dreams I picture Mary still.
I can often hear her gentle whispers
In the breeze that's flowing from the sea,
But I know it's just imagination,
For I know she never thinks of me. CHORUS TWICE
