Is it possible that Patrick Tunney wrote this song?

Patrick Tunney (1887 - 1951) was a poet and songwriter from Cushlough, Westport. Over his lifetime he penned and published over one hundred and twenty songs and poems which have been recited, recorded and performed many times. He wrote about life at the time in poems such as 'Drummin long ago', 'The Widow from Mayo', 'I bought my ticket at Westport Station', and 'Leenane by the sea'.

Joe Heany sings "The Widow from Mayo." Perhaps a song written by Patrick Tunney
