Here is one not mentioned.

Naimh Parsons sings it on 100 Irish Ballads volume 2. I love what she has done with it, without changing notes, over dramatizing or changing the words. There is an honesty in most everything she sings (even on that record). I would most enjoy versions that use ornamentation, slight changes in phrasing, and just plain heart-felt singing to get the point across. To me, this is one of the great Irish ballads and I don't think it should be messed with too much. Just my opinion.

Tunesmith, good luck on your interpretation.
