I have read of this..I am sure his name is spelled differently. I think he was a famine sufferer..don't mean to imply there was ever only one famine..this refers to the Irish potato famine...1847 therabouts. mg

You might be thinking of "Johnny Seoige" - which translates as Johnny Joyce but is pronounced roughly Johnny Show-ig-eh? Sung in Irish with one (or two?) phrase in English. Not sure if we have it around here...

Siochru is another spelling.

It's the "by" rather than the "boy" we need to be clear about, first!
