GUEST,Desi C Londonderry Air's original (Gaelic?) words (80* d) RE: Londonderry Air's original (Gaelic?) words 20 Jun 17

I believe I'm right in saying there were NO original words, it was a tune noted down by an English lady and later there was a competition to put lyrics to it, what we now know as Danny boy the winner. B y the way the Original title would NOT have been Londonderry Air but The Derry air as London prefix did not exist then
