Subject: Lyr Add: MARY FROM DUNGLOE
From: Wolfgang Hell
Date: 08 Oct 97 - 07:04 AM

Quite a sentimental Irish song (and tune) this is, played disproportionally often during the Mary from Dungloe Festival (Source: Folksongs and ballads popular in Ireland Vol. 1; all places mentioned, except "Amerikay" [sic], are in Co. Donegal):

MARY FROM DUNGLOE

1. Oh, then fare ye well, sweet Donegal, the Rosses and Gweedore.
I'm crossing the main ocean, where the foaming billows roar,
It breaks my heart from you to part, where I spent many happy days.
Farewell to kind relations for I'm bound for Amerikay.

2. Oh my love is tall and handsome and her age is scarce eighteen,
She far exceeds all other fair maids when she trips o'er the green,
Her lovely neck and shoulders are fairer than the snow,
Till the day I die I'll ne'er deny my Mary from Dungloe.

3. If I was at home in sweet Dungloe a letter I would write,
Kind thoughts would fill my bosom for Mary, my delight.
'Tis in her father's garden the fairest violets grow,
And 'twas there I came to court the maid, my Mary from Dungloe

4. Ah, then Mary, you're my hearts delight, my pride and only care,
It was your cruel father would not let me stay there.
But absence makes the heart grow fond and when I'm o'er the main,
May the Lord protect my darling girl till I return again.

5. And I wished I was in sweet Dungloe and seated on the grass.
And by my side a bottle of wine and on my knee a lass.
I'd call for liquor of the best and I'd pay before I go
And I'd roll my Mary in my arms in the town of sweet Dungloe.

Wolfgang

This is not in the DT. I copied the lyrics down somewhere, but can't find them tonight. I have no info on this song, in fact I don't know whether it is sung as an air or a rollicking tenor banjo driven song. I opted for the slower tempo as I notated it, but would appreciate some feedback. Regards, John.

HiJohn,

It's a slow ballad.

Mary from Dungloe

1. Oh, then fare ye well, sweet Donegal, the Rosses and Gweedore.
I'm crossing the main ocean, where the foaming billows roar,
it breaks my heart from you to part, where I spent many happy days.
Farewell to kind relations for I'm bound for Amerikay.

2. Oh my love is tall and handsome and her age is scarce eighteen,
she far exceeds all other fair maids when she trips o'er the green,
her lovely neck and shoulders are fairer than the snow,
till the day I die I'll ne'er deny my Mary from Dungloe.

3. If I was at home in sweet Dungloe a letter I would write,
kind thoughts would fill my bosom for Mary, my delight.
'Tis in her father's garden the fairest violets grow,
and 'twas there I came to court the maid, my Mary from Dungloe

4. Ah, then Mary, you're my hearts delight, my pride and only care,
it was your cruel father would not let me stay there.
But absence makes the heart grow fond and when I'm o'er the main,
may the Lord protect my darling girl till I return again.

5. And I wished I was in sweet Dungloe and seated on the grass.
And by my side a bottle of wine and on my knee a lass.
I'd call for liquor of the best and I'd pay before I go
and I'd roll my Mary in my arms in the town of sweet Dungloe.

One of my favorites. It was on a jukebox in a Greek pizza parlor in Newfoundland I first heard it.

Words as I recall and sing:

MARY FROM DUNGLOE

Fare thee well sweet Donegal the Rosses and Greenore???
I'm crossing the main ocean where foaming billows roar
It breaks my heart from you to part where we spent many happy days
Fairwell to kind relations I am bound for Americae.

Mary you're my heart's delight my pride and only care
It was your cruel father would not let me stay here
But abscence makes the heart grow fond so when I am over the main
May the Lord protect you darling girl until I return again

Then I wish I was in sweet Dunloe and seated on the grass
And by my side a bottle of wine and on my knee a lass
I'd call for liquor of the best and pay before I'd go
And I'd roll my Mary in my arms in the town of sweet Dunloe

(which I always screw up and say Sweet and Low..probably shouldn't have said so because now ..who knows..)


Many similarities to Star of Logy Bay. mg

I recall Colum Sands singing this (I think) at a session in Cologne some twenty five years ago. I don't know if he ever recorded it, but as he's a very charming and talented man, I should ask him if you see him. Johnny Coppin certainly used to do it really well. Maybe he has recorded it at some stage.

I know the Irish Rovers, a B.C. Canada group, sang it on at least two of their early recordings. One was an album called, "Emigrate! Emigrate." I think I may have it somewhere by someone else, but can't put my hand on it just now.

Reiver 1 and I used to sing it and I'm sure we learned it from the Irish Rovers. Our lyrics were very close to what Mary Garvey posted.

I have a set of books that I bought in Ireland a few years ago called "Folksongs & Ballads Popular in Ireland" and the song is in Vol I. The only note with the song says "Already several generations old when it was noted down in 1913. A very tuneful Co. Donegal song." No author is given. The lyrics in the book are as we (Reivers) and the Irish Rovers sang them except there are a couple extra verses which we didn't sing (verses 2 & 3);

MARY FROM DUNGLOE

Oh, then fare ye well sweet Donegal, the Rosses and Gweedore.
I'm crossing o'er the ocean, where the foaming billows roar.
It breaks my heart from you to part, where I spent many happy days.
Farewell to kind relations for I'm bound to Amerikay.

Oh, my love is tall and handsome and her age is scarce eighteen.
She far exceeds all other fair maids when she trips over the green.
Her lovely neck and shoulders are fairer than the snow;
'Till the day I die, I'll ne'er deny my Mary from Dungloe.

If I was at home in sweet Dungloe, a letter I would write.
Kind thought would fill my bosom for Mary, my delight.
'Tis in her father's garden the fairest violets grow,
And 'twas there I came to court the maid, my Mary from Dungloe.

Ah, then Mary you're my heart's delight, my pride and only care.
It was your cruel father would not let me stay there.
But absence makes the heart grow fond and when I am over the main,
May the Lord protect my darlin' girl, 'till I return again.

And I wish I was in sweet Dungloe and seated on the grass.
And by my side a bottle of wine and on my knee my lass.
I'd call for liquor of the best and I'd pay before I would go,
And I'd roll my Mary in my arms in the town of sweet Dungloe.

It's a lovely song, for sure!

That's exactly the text posted here by Wolfgang some years ago from the same book, and now in the DT (see links above), apart from a changed word or two. It was copied from Colm O Lochlainn, Irish Street Ballads, Dublin: Three Candles, 1939, 148-9.

O Lochlainn noted: "Learnt from W Feenan, fisherman of Ardglass, 1913. He had learnt it from a Donegal girl; a variant of the air was sung to another ballad - 'Donegal's the place for all, 'tis there I'd like to be.' I gave this to D J O'S who printed it in IFS [Journal of the Irish Folk Song Society] xviii, [1929] 29."

That would appear to be the song's earliest appearance in print, though much of it is obviously modelled on earlier songs. It would a sad thing if the book you mention didn't bother to acknowledge O Lochlainn and the sources he took care to credit.

I think the group Sweeney's Men made this song popular, singing it in harmony. The song is well-known in Ireland.

I also have it from Ó Lochlainn's "Irish Street Ballads", though I change a line or two and add a verse borrowed from another song.

Malcolm, I agree, the note in the book I have should have included the connection with Colm O Lochlainn. The note you quoted from him in Irish Street Ballads is much more helpful than the one from my book which, essentially, says nothing at all and is useless (except, perhaps, for the 1913 date). All the notes in the books I referred to (4 volumes) are brief and generally unhelpful, more's the pity.

Perhaps I was too negative about the notes in these little books. I just looked them over and although my comments are accurate for most of the songs, a few of them are much more informative. Also, I forgot to mention an overall note which the editor/collector, John Loesberg, includes which says:

"Although in no way meant to be comprehensive, the following notes will give, as far as relevant and traceable, some idea of the background of each song.

"Rather than repeating the same at each entry, it must be said from the outset that the three original Irish folk-groups, who nearly single-handedly were responsible for much of the revival, The McPeake Family, The Dubliners and Tommy Makem with the Clancy Brothers, covered many of the songs in this collection with their own inimitable versions. Many of their early recordings are still available and one could do worse than to be guided by these enthusiastic, if at times, stagey performances.

"Only after the revival settled in a bit, were we able to hear the old country singers, the ones who had acted for so long as the true repository for all these wonderful songs. Many of these singers have now been recorded and their voices may be heard again.

"Apart from the recordings, mention must be made of collectors such as Joyce, Colm O'Lochlainn and James N. Healy, who first published the song books and collections that in many ways formed the backbone of the re-found repertoire."

I still would feel much better if Loesberg had been more explicit in tying individual songs to sources and background.

Daniel O' Donnell had a 400,000 selling version on the Album 'From the Heart' currently available as a double CD with 'thoughts of home'. His version is also available on a number of compilations.   His version recorded in 1988, issued in the States in 2003 - is probably one of the largest selling of this title -- but I don't think that folk musicians necessarily appreciate that!

The air is surely best done slowly, especially since it gives some opportunities for embellishments not unlike those practised by Gaelic Sean nOs singers. The only set of it I've ever seen in print (I learnt it by ear, from a Donegal Forestry worker, many years ago) is in Colm O'Lochlainn's "Irish Street Ballads", and it's a very chaste setting. According to a recent BBC TV documentary on Irish Traditional Music, it achieved wide popularity when a recording was made in the 1960s (perhaps by John Kerr?).

Emmet Spiceland were an amalgamation of the Emmet and Spiceland folk groups, and when they recorded they comprised of English born brothers Brian and Michael Byrne and the boul' Dónal Lunny from Newbridge in County Kildare. Brian Byrne took the lead vocals on "Mary from Dungloe.

Note Emmet is spelled with one "t", as in the surname of the patriot Robert Emmet, executed in 1803.

Brian Byrne later made a solo album "Brian Byrne" on Hawk Records (HALP 105), and I would love to get a digital copy of it!

Little known fact department; In 1989 a band called Marxman was founded in London, and among it's members was Oisín Lunny (son of Dónal) and Michael Byrne (AKA (MC) Hollis) son of (one of) the Byrnes. Their album "33 Revolutions per Minute" is bloody good, but might scare some of the more delicate members of the Mudcat.
