Whether sung at funeral masses or by Elvis Presley, the song Danny Boy nearly always raises a lump in the throat. The song itself may be simple and direct, but McCourt ("A Monk Swimming") has written a lively and detailed cultural history of the tune's origins, cultural meanings, and political import that is as fascinating as it is frequently provocative.
