CLAIMED BY IRELAND

British National Anthem and “Yankee Doodle,” Old Irish Tunes.
“Yankee Doodle” is not American at all – it’s Irish, according to Dr. Grattan Flood, an Irish authority on musical history. He asserts that “Yankee Doodle” was originally an Irish Air known as “All the way to Galway,”
“God Save the King,” the British national anthem, Dr. Flood says, also is an old Irish tune which originated about 1595 and has been going strong ever since.
