These notes come from a Wolfe Tones album:
[1974:] This tune, revived by Sean O'Riada, was originally a composition of the blind Derry harpist Rory 'Dall' O'Cathain. He wrote it while on a visit to Scotland where he had a disagreement with a Lady Eglingtoun. He composed the tune for her when she apologized. Brian's words are directed at the disagreements between the two peoples in Ireland today. (Notes Wolfe Tones, 'Till Ireland A Nation')
The info sounds very positive, but after reading this thread there seems reason for doubt. Brian Warfield of the Wolfe Tones claims copyright for the words. I suppose there's no doubt about that? Or were there earlier words? - Susanne
