Tune of the Day: The Gay Young Fireman

Traditional Irish air

This air appears in Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in Chicago in 1922. O'Neill writes:

Some fifty years ago I heard a ballad sung to this air by a young lady from Brooklyn, NY. It recited the fascinations of A Gay Young Fireman of that city. The strain, unmistakably of Irish origin, displays marked individuality.
