For some interesting thoughts.

I heard a different explanation from Maureen O’Hara in an interview that this was one of many songs about Ireland produced when the Irish were not allowed to talk about a free Ireland by the British. It seems odd that the tune’s melody was by an Englishman, but the lyricist wrote several Irish songs and the song was made famous by an Irish singer.
