Mother Ireland 2012

By William Finnerty

"And I shall feel how soft you tread above me, And then my grave will richer, sweeter be; For you will bend and tell me that you love me, And I shall rest in peace until you come to me."

The above text forms one of several slightly different versions of the final verse of an old Irish Song which, over the past hundred years or so, has come to be much appreciated and enjoyed by a great many people all around the world.

Elvis Presley
(for example) loved this song, and once commented: "It was written by the angels".
His family arranged to have it played at his funeral service in 1977:

As some people see things: "Elvis did not die; he simply returned to his spiritual home in Heaven."

"The composer (of the music of Danny Boy) is not known for certain but many attribute it to a blind Irish harpist called Rory Dall O'Cahan ( http:// tinyurl.com /cbw3mfe ), who's thought to have lived in northern Ireland in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth century."
