'Donahoe ballads have been heard sung, and collected in Ireland, England, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Canada and the United States of America, and they are fairly well known throughout the length and breadth of Australia. One of these ballads gradually evolved into a version which is even more widely known than the original - "The Wild Colonial Boy".'
