I did a little checking, Jim, and I found that the river that flows through Cork is called the Lee in English and An Laoi in Irish. But I couldn't find a song about the An Laoi or the Anlow.

All I did was learn a little geography.

Jim, do a Google of

"Where the Allow River Flows"

Leave the quotation marks on.

Both the song and the CD are mentioned.

Jim, Theres a CD by the title "Where the Allow Waters Flow" by a singer called Elle Marie O'Dwyer. It might be worth checking out!

Thanks all - will check it out when the head clears - slowly getting over a (second) launch of Tim and John Lyons' CD 'Easy and Bold' - also worth checking out.

The tune seems to be one of those warhorses recycled ad nauseam, though the name of a classic example isn't coming to mind. "Van Dieman's Land", maybe? All I know is that, having heard the first half of the first line, I gave a sigh of recognition: "Spare us!" The saving grace was O'Dwyer's voice--remarkable--though I personally would have preferred to hear her without the ambient Enyatronics.

What I found was Where the Allow Waters Flow, recorded very nicely by Elle Marie O Dwyer on Claddagh Records.

Art:
"The tune seems to be one of those warhorses"
Have to confess that I quite like the tune, no matter how many times it's been used; I associate it with Dobbin's Flowery Vale.
The song itself is not usually the type I'd break my neck to search out, but again, I found enough detail in it to hold my attention.
I agree entirely with you about the electronic wallpaper that the singer is singing against, which for me, only serves (as a negative example) to emphasise how beautiful the solo, unaccompanied voice can be, especially one like Ms O'Dwyer's.
Anyway, I have no doubt I shall be hearing the song regularly as the enquirer is a local publican where our regular music/singing session happens every Wednesday - now I only have to find her 'The Jogger From Clare' to win my free pint - cheers all!

Hold out for two pints, Jim - one per song.
It's only fair.

Listen to Joe, Jim. At the rate this is going, at least you'll have one pint to drink.

It was written by Con Herbert

Also, here's the video on YouTube, but you need someone familiar with all the towns and stuff she's listing.
