Paddy Leary
I first heard this song, which dates at least back
to 1889, on an old Victrola recording on YouTube.
It was Wilfred Glenn I heard singing it, and it is still
up on YouTube today. It came out well before
the era of Tin Pan Alley in the U.S., and I consider
it a stage song of the 1880s-90′s

Faulty Credits
This is an old song composed by Battison Hayes (b.1859-d.1900).
It is not by John Patterson, of County Clare, Ireland, who is
also of some note. The Clare County Library had the wrong
attribution for a short while, but quickly corrected it after we
sent an email with the updated information. It is usually
given as a traditional tune, also associated with Stephen Temple.

The Victrola Version
The early version I heard was quite distinctive, with orchestra
in the background, and a rather…. exaggerated style, which I
think fits the piece, and how it was performed in the day.
John McCormack himself performed the song, as well as the
‘Irish Tenors’ in more modern times.
Todays video contains my version ‘Paddy Leary’, just because
it stuck with me for a few years.

Here are the Lyrics I normally use for this song:

MY NAME IS PADDY LEARY
Oh, Me name is Paddy Leary
from a spot called Tipp-er-ar-y-
The hearts of all the girls I am a thorn in
But before the break of morn-
it is they’ll be all forlorn
For- I’m -off to- Philadelphi in the morning
——————————————————-
chorus:
With- me bundle on me shoulder,
faith, there’s no man could be bolder
I’m lavin dare old Ireland witout warning
For I lately took the notion,
for to cross the briny ocean
And,, I start for,, Philadelphi in the mornin
——————————————————-
There’s a girl called Kate Malone
whom I’d hope to call me own
and To see me little cabin floor- adornin
But my heart is – sad and weary -,
how can she be Mrs. Leary-
If, I start for,- Philadelphi in the morning
——————————————————-
chorus:
With- me bundle on me shoulder,
faith, there’s no man could be bolder
I’m lavin dare old Ireland witout warnin
For I lately took the notion,
for to cross the briny ocean
And,,- I start for,- Philadelphi in the morning
———————————————————-
When they told me I must lave this place
I tried to keep a, – cheerful – face,….
For To show me hearts deep sorrow I – was scornin,
But the tears will surely blind me -
for the friends I lave behind me -
When- I start for, Philadelphi in the mornin
———————————————————
chorus 2:
But though, me bundles on me shoulder
sure there’s no man can be bolder
I’m leaving now the spot that I was born in
Yet some day I’ll take the notion
to come back across the ocean
To- me- home- in – dear old Ireland-
in the- mornin-
(- end of lyrics -)

You can listen to our version of the song

We publish more Irish genealogy books than anyone in the world !

Book of the Month:

1)  County Tipperary, Ireland, genealogy & family history notes.
http://www.irishroots.com/id4543.htm

Description:
Volume 25 of our Irish Families Project, and this book is only
on County Tipperary, Ireland.  Here is some info taken from
the book above:

Most Numerous Tipperary Familes
The 19th century birth index of Ireland finds the following families most
numerous in the county
(Possible variant spellings after each name have been added) :

Ryan…..Ryane……Riane
Maher…..Mahair…..Mahar
O’Brien…..O’Bryan…..Brian
Kennedy…..Kenedy…..Cannady
Dwyer…..Dwier…..Dwire
Hogan…..Hogane…..Hogain
Hayes…..Hays..,…Haes
Gleeson…..Gleason…..Gleasane
McGrath…..McGraw…..MacGra
Walsh…..Welsh…..Welch
Kelly…..Kellie…..Kelley
Lonergan……Lonorgan….Lanorgan

Most of the old Irish names can have the Mac or ‘O’ before the
name dropped or added at will.  Additionally many old Irish names
were translated or ‘mistranslated’ into English from the original Irish.
Two more basic resources for the 19th century are the Tithe
Applotment Books, and Griffiths Survey of Ireland. They are available
at the National Library of Ireland and elsewhere.

Irish Family Name of the Day:
Ryan

Todays family history in honor of :
1) member Patrick Ryan, whose Ryan family came over to
Carleton Place, Ontario, Canada.
2) member Nora Perry.
3) Member Brenda Gregory.

Related Spellings of the Name
Ryane, Rian, O’Ryan, Mulryan, Mulrian, O’Mulryan, Ruan, Rouane

Variant Spelling Groups: 1825, 1831, 2494, 2998
From The Guide to the Various Spellings of Irish Family Names
http://www.irishroots.com/id4918.htm

History of the Name
Ryan families rank as one of the ten most numerous in Ireland.
The older forms of O’Ryan and O’Mulryan etc.. have largely been
discarded.
It appears that most Ryans today descend anciently from the
O’Maoilrian family of Co. Tipperary.  This family held Owney in
Co. Tipperary and Owneyburg in Co. Limerick.  They are found
on the Map of Ortelius in that area.  These lands were once
known as “Owney Mulryan”, referring to the older spelling of the
name there.
Keatings History also gives the O’Ryans as an ancient family
of note in other counties…..  Ryan is found most numerous of
all names in Limerick and Tipperary in modern times
