GUEST,Lighter Origins: Foggy Dew (Irish) (30) RE: Origins: Foggy Dew 24 Mar 16

Graves's "Foggy Dew" is very different from that attributed to him by Junior Crehan (Jim Carroll, March 14, 1915, above).

Neither song/ poem scans to any "Foggy Dew" tune I'm aware of, though perhaps they could be wrenched to fit "The Banks and Braes of Bonnie Doon."


Moore's "To Rosa" scans to Bunting's "Foggy Dew" (coll. in Belfast in 1839), but it would be interesting to know when the poem, written in 1804, was set to the music.
