Richard Mellish Origins: Matt Hyland (35) RE: Origins: Matt Hyland origins?? 03 Nov 18

I agree that it has a good tune but I've never had a very high opinion of the words, especially the ending where "they made a lord of young Matt Hyland". A change of heart on the father's part is just about plausible, and presumably would be accompanied by a good wad of cash and/or a better job than the original one as a servant, but making him a lord?
