I wouldn't know how to find it, suspect I'd like it a lot. Closest I've come is "Dear Old Donegal" which is probably much later. Also "Peg O' My Heart," which I think is from the 30's. Maybe more, but can't identify it.

I believe the song "There Goes Muldoon, He's an Honest Man" (close as I can come to a title) is Irish-American from the late 1800's although it was collected in Ireland. However I always have to add that I have a memory that often plays tricks on me.... It's a wonderful song anyway, a political campaign song to the tune of "I'll Lay Ye Doon." Trad (more or less), not Tin Pan Alley.

More titles please?

Frank Maher: In response to your thread of 2/16 I am keenly interested in American-Irish music of the 1930's, especially the type done by Frank Quinn. I've found only one recording of his and it is my favorite. It seems to be a re-worked 78rpm and the lyrics are very difficult to decipher. If anybody else has this CD I'd love to work with you on finding the lyrics to some songs that I have yet to find anywhere on the WWW. I suspect they were locally popular in NYC where Quinn was well known. And a Happy St Pat's Day to all of yez!!

Frank...are you looking for old Irish-American music or people to play/talk with? If you're looking, you might try the Boston Public Library's research department..I bet they could also provide you with Irish-American Clubs which were popular in Boston's history and may still be in existence. Their members would know many of the 20's and 30's songs (I think).

Frank,

If you have the lyrics to "One Night I Came Home To My Kitty" I'd be so grateful to have them. It's on Frank Quinn's album titled "If You Are Irish".

I'll be looking for the Flanagan Brothers albums now that you've given me the lead.

Thanks and more thanks,(to Night Owl, too)

Rosie
