I have just finished reading "The True History of the Kelly Gang", an intriguing take on the life of Ned Kelly. There are several references to songs sung in the Irish community, most of them fairly well known, but this one I haven't come across before. Any info?

Doesn't ring a bell - and a quick check in a few obvious places draws a blank. Any other details? Even a list of the "fairly well known" ones might help give context.

Don't have the book, Martin, it's back in the school library, but Roddy MacCorley was one and the rest were of that ilk.

Which may mean it's a relatively recent one...

There is an American ballad called Rose Connolly among other things.

Thought I'd posted this already but it didn't "take"...

Judging by Roud's index, the Rose Connolly song was collected exclusively in the States. Seems an unlikely candidate at the moment.

Spent a while looking for this in the Irish Traditional Music Archive today. Had almost given up when I decided to try rose in "Title" and Australia in "associated country" as search terms. Up popped a song called Sweet Rose of Clonmel (think about the erosion...). The archive has a photocopy of the sheet music. Unfortunately, the Australian connection seemed to be just that the publishers had an Australian branch! Basically a drawing room ballad with piano accompaniment, as far as I can see. Mind you - such songs have been known to go feral! I reckon it's a contender, anyway.

It's certainly possible that it's a distortion, Martin. At any rate, the one you link to is a new one to me.
