Hi Sorcha,

a friend told me that the Salley Gardens are the small gardens in front of a house. Hm, I'm not very familiar with old english or irish houses that much :o)
The song Salley Gardens itself was written by W.B. Yeats, melody and lyrics.

No idea about the tune. But I know in Irish Folk there are several tune names which are also song names and don't have anything to do with each other. Can't remember one at the moment.

Kind regards
