The Londonderry Aire and the Blue Danube are the two
most beautiful pieces of music yet heard by human ears.
Very close, however, I lean to 'Derry'.

Miss jane Ross is a direct descendent of mine. My
mother is called Jane Ross after her relative and still
lives in Limavady. We have always known Jane wrote down
the tune to this song. This seems to run in the family
as my mother still writes the most beautiful poetry
and has done so for many years.

Josef Locke singing Danny Boy is really a tear jerker,
Elvis Presley's version a must hear!
But I am a little biased:-)

Where is there a statue of Fred Weatherly?
Regarding a lady hearing miners playing the Londonderry Air in Colorado in the US
and that those miners might have been from the Limavady area.
During that time frame my greatgrandfather James Oliver and his brother
Thomas were in Colorado mining. They were originally from Lislane, Limavady.
I am sure they were not the only miners in that area from the Limavady area.
From what I have seen, most of the immigrants to the US tended to move around
the country in groups.
