'D'Cats:

Here's the second fragement from my "collectin'" efforts with my dad. As far as I can see, it's not in the DT either.

Oh they had to peel the paper off the walls
To fit all the people in the halls

Much obliged!

Oh we all went down to Mick McGilligan's Ball
Were they had to peel the paper off the wall
To make room for all the people in the hall
Oh the girls and the boys
Made a divil of a noise
At Mick McGilligan's Ball

WassaiL! V

Hope that this pastes well. Sounds vaguely like Lannigans Ball. We seem to have similar taste in music. If it is the same tune, you can PM me for the dots. Same for the other one you posted.

Michael McGilligan one fine day
Got a lot of money from the USA
All through the death of his uncle Joe
He got a million and a half or so
Says McGilligan: "I'll give a fancy ball
Down at the old ancestral hall"
Invited the neighbours everyone
For to have some music and some rare old fun

So they all went down to Mick McGilligan's ball
Where they had to tear the paper off the wall
To make room for all the people in the hall
Oh, the girls and boys made a devil of a noise
At Mick McGilligan's ball

All of the neighbours came from near and far
Mulligan arrived there in a motor car
Old Missus O'Reilly, bless her heart
Came with the family in a donkey cart
Pat O'Rafferty arrived in an aeroplane
You'll never see the like again
And there was a shout when two old Skins
Came along at a gallop with two Miss Quinns

And they all went down to Mick McGilligan's ball
Where they had to tear the paper off the wall
To make room for all the people in the hall
Oh, the girls and boys made a devil of a noise
At Mick McGilligan's ball

Fluters and fiddlers danced around
Drumming on the moleskin made a lovely sound
They blew a gale on the old trombone
Then reeled and rollicked to the piper's drone
When they'd finished with the whiskey, beer and wine
They took a hand in "Auld Lang Syne"
There ne'r was the like I do declare
As that grand old hooley down in sweet Kildare

When they all went down to Mick McGilligan's ball
Where they had to tear the paper off the wall
To make room for all the people in the hall
Oh, the girls and boys made a devil of a noise
At Mick McGilligan's ball
B A double L Ball

Gypsy, you're terrific!!!

I thank you. My DAD thanks you! He's the repository of all these fragments, and I'ven't a clue why--he doesn't drink and he isn't Irish! But what a collection of Irish drinking songs he's got.

Thank you again!!!

See also  Mick McGilligan's Ball

You can search for phrases via the "Digitrad and Forum Search" on the main Forum page; paper off the walls finds it, for example.  We don't seem to have a tune for it; any offers?

Well--

I know a tune for the paper off the walls fragment, and we'll see what Dad comes up with when he sees the rest of the words tomorrow!
