GUEST,George Henderson - Nenagh Singers Circle Lyr Add: Dunne Song ('...overdone and underdone... (42) RE: Dunne Song /Mr. Done and Over Done and Under.... 23 Nov 04


I thought I had posted this before. Anyway, I collected this song from one of the Bangor Morris Men in 1986 or therabouts when the festival was held in the Kings Arms. He had been singing it for many, many years.

Brian Mullins, from Derry, Collected it from the same source and I heard that he ha given it to Tommy sands which may, or may not be true.

According to my source it is an old english folk song. the name Dunne is common to boht Ireland and England. It is a very common name in Tipperary where I am currently living.

Fintan Vallely has written a very good parody relating to Ben Dunne whose indiscretions in Miami have caused the long running Tribunals here in IReland. Well worth checking out
