whichever one came first, does not alter the fact that the leaving of liverpool, has been folk processed in the sense it mentions specific liverpool areas in the song.
the leaving of limerick? never heard of it before this thread, it is possible that it is the original song, but without further evidence I think the leaving of liverpool is more probable, liverpool as i understand it has a more noteworthy seafaring history than limerick, but I would be happy to be corrected
