The 1912 classic by the author of many songs including Follow Me Up to Carlow is free to download on archive.org.

In case anyone thinks this is illegal downloading, it's not; archive.org is what it says, an archive of out-of-copyright material. Some fascinating film and audio on there too.

Thanks for the link, JTT.

The songs are poems; there are no melodies.

I shall send a stiff note back to 1911 complaining of the lack of melody.

By the way, steer clear of the .mobi, it's awful. Go for the PDF if you're downloading it.

Internet Archive is very much worth looking into for Irish songs, although many of the books they have are filled with 'Oirish' banalities there are still quite a few better ones. There are also a number of Irish Gaelic books, but unfortunately nearly all of them are in the old typeface which makes reading difficult if you are not used to it.
