Sheet music for a ballad entitled OH! ERIN MY COUNTRY (MY HEART BEATS FOR THEE) in The Harp of Erin or Songs of Killarney, edited by Charles Jefferys, No. 1. "Sung by Miss Steele." The date of circa 1840 is derived from the British Library catalogue. There is no direct connection to THE COLLEEN BAWN, except that Boucicault's drama is set around the Lake of Killarney and the ballad may have been used during productions of the drama.
Sheet music for a ballad entitled THE COLLEEN BAWN, words by Denis Florence McCarthy, music by Charles W. Glover. The ballad is not directly linked to Dion Boucicault's drama, but there is a reference to it in a note. There is no date, but the ballad is likely to have been published between 1860, the year THE COLLEEN BAWN was published, and Glover's death in 1863.
