J M Crofts

I have no biography of Joseph M Crofts. The best I can find is a Joseph Mary Crofts (age 24) who was recorded in the 1911 Census as a 'delph and hardware merchant' living in Dublin at 82 Camden Street, Lower West Side. He could read and write, and was fluent in Irish and English languages.  His songs include :-

The Carlow Maid
Lament for Patrick Pearse
Sweet lovely vale of Adare
Eileen McManus
Wild Colonial Boy
A battle hymn
Galloping Hogan
Irish Rover
