Ah - I thought it must have another title: The Lighning Flash, Cork Harbour, and Come All Ye Jolly Sailor Boys (bit generic that one!) - are all variants it seems.

Dan seems to have tracked down a melody fairly close to "Erin's Lovely Home" - the song is much discussed here.

That'll do for me.

Thanks all

Tom
