The lovely Irish rose, song (A winding welard winds its way out to a lovely Irish home …)

Composed by Fred Kearney of Carndonagh, Co Donegal, this song was available widely on commercial 78rpm records during the 1930s and ‘40s (McBride 1988:114–15). In more recent years, it was recorded by well-known Newfoundland singers Harry Hibbs (More Harry Hibbs, Arc Sound, 1968) and Eddie Coffey (Live at the Newfoundlander, Country Records, 1978). 

Eta Nash learned “The lovely Irish rose” in order to sing it at a school concert.
