AmyLove Lyr Req: Lady of Loughrea (24) RE: Lyr Req: Lady of Loughrea 13 Mar 16


The lyrics to THE LADY OF LOUGHREA which Jim Dixon posted include the words "feathered shoe," so presumably that is the song the OP wanted, and the lyrics I posted have some clear similarities with those he posted. Compare this stanza from his post:

If I owned all Portumna or the markets of Athlone,
Or the wharves and all the money that belong to Limerick town,
I would part them to your people, if you'd let me presume
Just to walk with you, lovely lady, and to be your Squire in Tuam.

with this stanza from my post:

If I had Portumna and Louisborough town,
Limerick with division, and Dublin all round,
I'd part with it all for the sake of you, my dear,
To consult with my darling for a long day and a year.

And of course the song titles are similar, so, yes, I believe the lyrics Dixon posted and the ones I posted are from two versions of the same song -- the song the OP wanted. And the song I heard on Raidió na Gaeltachta today which I'm seeking information about is yet another version of the song.
