Just though ye would like to know....

P.W Joyce copied this song from Edward Walsh and the tune is possibly taken from a song called ' Nancy the Pride of the East.' George Petrie published the tune in 'Ancient Music of Ireland,' and according to Eoghan Ó Comhraí ( another collector), the song itself comes from the pen of a school master from Kerry, Fínín Ó Scannáil, who composed the song in 1810
