Thread Name: 'Danny Boy' at Catholic funeral
Subject: RE: 'Danny Boy' at Catholic funeral
Just a note on Danny Boy:

The words were written c1910 by an Englishman, Fred Weatherly, and I do not know whether he was a Catholic or not (Quite probably not). There is also no evidence that he ever visited Ireland.

So it should not be at all controversial (Unless you object to ENGLISH songs!)

There is also no evidence as to WHO is supposed to be singing to Danny.
