Yes I do it I sat down with Cathy Ryan and we worked it out together, what reference point?
I base it on the D chord family.
D - DARk is the even....... silent the G hour,
Oh D who ...Am minstral ...by G Yonder lone A7 tower
Whose D hear.... touchibg with G skill
oh D who can it Bm be but yuong A7 Ned...the D hill

It is G hard ..es D cape from that G young....A7 Bower
For D high is the Bm castle and G guarded the A7 tower
But the D mind .....holds the G will and D Eileen is Bm gone with young A7 Ned of the D hill.
link is based on G- A7 twice
best I can offer off the top of me head but I was singing in the street and met a man Bob who can sing it in gaelic, so he did.Its great how the music introducespeople to each other good luck I run a club in Herts Eng

Assuming it's the trad song, breezy & Cathy Ryan have nailed it, I'm sure.

The following supplementary attempt is Foolish of me (but, at my age why change now?:) because I play neither the guitar nor any other instrument (bit of the tin whistle, but I said "instrument":); nor do I read music (haul away O hear me sing, I'll prove it to yez); NOR do I have the gaelic. Accordingly, with these eminent qualifications, (and begging yer kind pardon pleezy, breezy) --

Hereinbelow, transcribed (including phrasing hyphenations) from The Irish Songbook copyright 1969 by Tiparm Music Publishers Inc., is The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem version -- with *their* chords (any good?? I dunno) as best I can place 'em in the first verse (hope the placements survive transmission); in the Irish, as best I can type it but **without the crucial accent marks** (sorry! "I dunno how it works!" - Wizard of Oz); and with the CBros&TM phonetic (fanatic?) spellings below each line. Please be tolerant. (Gaeltacht 'Cats - fix it up??) / As approximately set forth below, this was recorded longlong ago as a Liam Clancy solo. / Thanks. - da Pook

Waal, dammit, the chord placements *didn't* survive the transmission correctly; they're over different words now. / Well I tried -- and the *sequences* & lines are correct, anyway. (I think.) You real musicians can figure it out, right? / Back to yer tin whistle, Pooka, before you post again and Put the Tin Hat On It. :)

Can't help with the chords but I once spoke to Terry Woods, co-author of the song, in the pub before a Pogues, Barrowland, Glasgow, gig (in was chaos in there but the Pogues were a real band of the people - spoke to ordinary people and drank ordinary beer). I didn't know what to say so I tried "thanks for writing a great song Terry". He looked a bit suspicious (Shane was the great songwriter of the band) - "what was that?" - "Young Ned of the Hill" . He was delighted and sang the song with amazing gusto on stage about an hour later.

The original Ned, Edmund Ryan (Eamonn a Chnoic) was born in 1670, died 1724. He was a rapparee, a political rebel outlaw. He was indeed murdered for "blood money", a reward of £200. A memorial marks the spot where he is buried at Currahheen, near Hollyford, Tipperary.
