Subject: Origins. Is trua nach bhfuil mé in Éirinn.

Dear all,

      I am researching a possible relationship between two songs, wondering whether the Donegal song "Is trua nach bhfuil mé in Éirinn" might be a version of Jacobite song "Séamus Mac Murchaidh". There are over one hundred versions of "Séamus Mac Murchaidh" (among others, there is one on Tory island, one in Ranafast sung by Caitlín Ní Dhomhnaill, and Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin also recorded a version from County Louth).

    Now in Connemra, there is also a version of "Séamus Mac Murchaidh" called "Amárach lá 'le Pádraig" (sung by Joe Heaney). "Amárach lá 'le Pádraig" and "Is Trua nach bhfuil mé in Éirinn" share one verse in common: the second verse of "Amárach lá 'le Pádraig" is pretty much the same as the last verse of "IS trua nach bhfuil mé in Éirinn". Does anyone know of a source stating that "Is trua nach bhfuil mé in Éirinn" can also be connected to Jacobite song "Séamus Mac Murchaidh"? Do both songs have the same Údar? I realise it is a difficult question but I have been wondering for a long while, and wonder if anyone may know for sure?

      If you do, thanks for answering! If you know who might know, thanks for telling me! :.) Thanks for reading this! Batsheva Battu. :.)
