John Moulden songs to the tune of Star of the County Down (75* d) RE: Star of the County Down 02 Feb 01


There is a reference above to the words of the Star of the County Down (as first published in Herbert Hughes' Irish Country Songs, vol 4(1936) having been possibly written by "Cathal Garvey 1866-1927"

According to Colm O'Lochlainn "Songwriters of Ireland in the English Tongue" The Star of the County Down was undoubtedly written by Cathal McGarvey 1866-1927, a native of Ramelton, Co Donegal who lived most of his life in Dublin.

McGarvey also wrote the Devil and Bailiff McGlynn.
