Another theory is that it is based on the traditional Irish folk tune "Carrigdonn" or "Carrigdhoun". The song is representative of French's many works concerning the Irish diaspora. The song is a whimsical look at the styles, attitudes and fashions of late nineteenth-century London as seen from the point of view of an emigrant labourer from a village near the Mourne Mountains. It is written as a message to the narrator's true love at home. The "sweep down to the sea" refrain was inspired by the view of the mountains from Skerries in north County Dublin.

Mountains of Mourne
Celtic Thunder Lyrics. Oh Mary this London's a wonderful sight With people here workin' by day and by night They don't sow potatoes, nor barley, nor wheat But there's gangs of them diggin' for gold in the street At least when I asked them that's what I was told So I just took a hand at this diggin' for gold But for all that I found there I might as well be In the place where the dark Mourne sweep down to the sea. There's beautiful girls here, Oh never you mind Beautiful shapes nature never designed lovely complexions of roses and cream But let me remark with regard to the same That if at that those roses you venture to sip The colours might all come away on your lips So I'll wait for the wild rose that's waitin' for me In the place where the dark Mourne sweep down to the sea. You remember young Davey Mc Clarin of course Well sure, now, he's round here with the rest of the force I saw him one day as I was crossin' the strand And he stopped the whole street with a wave of his hand And as we stood talkin' of days that are gone The whole town of London stood there to look on But for all his great powers he's wishful like me To be back where the dark Mourne sweep down to the sea But for all his great powers he's wishful like me To be back where the dark Mourne sweep down to the sea.

Marriage does weird things to Mormons You're correct, that he should ask her these things would you marry a non Mormon. I'll tell her that we are strictly friends for now on. While Scientology is way worse hopefully the parallels will get her thinking. My current atheism bothers him a little but as long as we respect each other it's fine. She will introduce you to the church. About ten years ago, I realized I needed to quit qualifying my excellent husband who is a better man than many Mormon men I knowI realized I needed to raise my kids to think of him as completely equal to the men they knew at church. You can't force her to change, nor should you if you could. The standard principles of day game apply. Do FaceTime with her when she gets there to drink tea. I was spiritually prepared to receive the answer that I sought.
I decided that if the church taught the general principle that couples should be married in the temple and that was not possible for me if I married this girlthen I should see if my choice would be an exception to the rule. Although with the change in times, people may not follow these rules as stringently as before, it is still better to be careful so as to not offend anyone, and you may possibly land up with the love of your life. So how do we approach saving a relationship with someone who has unrealistic expectations of what a long-term relationship looks like. He might be a doc by day but when he's not at the hospital he's a regular guy just like anyone else. Keep things going and see what happens. I am 27, LDS, and 5 days away from marrying my own amazing non-Mormon man.
