I have searched every thread possible on Donegal Danny and seen some mention that Phil Coulter(and Martin) authored "Donegal Danny". However, I have gone to other sourcing sites including AllMusic for Phil Coulter looking for credits and it is not listed as his. I have a few versions on cd that give it no authorship either. Does anyone have a definitive answer on this song?

Well, allmusic.com does list Bill Martin and Phil Coulter as composer of several instances of "Donegal Danny."

On a CD titled Donegal Danny by The Mudmen, all songs, including Donegal Danny, are credited to Alex Maletich / James Campbell / Robert Campbell. These prolific writers are also credited with writing "The Irish Rover," "Sam Hall," "All for me Grog," and others - in other words, I'm sure that attribution is false.

The attribution to Martin and Coulter is not as strong as I'd like to see, but it's the most credible attribution we've found. I would really like to get a list of songs by Phil Coulter, and learn how to license them. I tried to get a print license for "The Town I Loved So Well," and failed. We had to drop the song from the Rise Again songbook.

Donegal Danny isn't an old song. Danny sold fish from a handcart and lived close to the village of Downings.

He was popular with woman and did a number of house calls and gossip has it he was very well endowed.

Thanks again to everyone. Once more the mudcatters have saved the day. I obvously don't seem to have the search savvy that Joe has because I simply didn't not see any mention at all under Phil Coulter at AllMusic but this is not the first time I've missed something (and I can guarantee it won't be the last! :-) ) I have added this composer in ink pen to my lyric sheet. I agree that an actual list of Phil Coulter songs would be a wonderful list to have but I suspect that it would be almost impossible to track them all down. Oh, and to the guest who posted....I'll leave that little tidbit of info just between us, lol!
