Thread Name: Lyr Add: Irish versions of Child Ballads
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Irish versions of Child Ballads
Ah, that makes much more sense. Sadly, I can't say I helped with any of those marches; "CND" comes from a sort of abbreviation of parts of my name.

I found this, which I'm not sure if you've seen or not.

"Saucy Ward, a version of Captain Ward and the Rainbow (Child 287) recorded in Wexford and published by Joseph Ranson, C.C. in Songs of the Wexford Coast, Enniscorthy 1948, (reprinted Norwood, Pennsylvania 1973), 49-50. The edition of Francis James Child's The English and Scottish Popular Ballads."
