Hi all! In researching the lyrics to this tune, I have come to discover that it is not an ancient Irish air at all. It was composed by an accordionist named Thomas Walsh in the 70's. Apparently there are so many versions of it floating around calling it "traditional" that he is rarely given the credit he is due. Glad I found out. I'll be taking the video down today from here. If you want to see/hear my arrangement it's on my youtube page here:
