The assumption that the song is a product of Ireland is only partially correct. The melody is found in an 1840 collection of Irish harp music. However, it wasn’t until 1913, when British poet/composer/lawyer, Frederic Edward Weatherly (composer of the WW II hit, “The Roses of Picardy”) combined the lyrics from his unsuccessful song, “Danny Boy”, with a melody sent to him by a friend, that the song as we know it came to be. You may also know this melody as “Londonderry Air”, which is one of more than 100 other titles by with it is known.
