Does anyone know an old Irish ballad that begins with the line 'May your moon shine out tonight across the valley, and if so what is the actual title of the song?

THE LONELY WOODS OF UPTON
Many homes are filled sorrow and with sadness Many hearts are filled with anguish and with pain And old Ireland now she hangs her head in sorrow For the men who died at Upton for Sinn F%E9in
Let the moon shine out tonight along the valley Where those heroes of Sinn F%E9in in ambush fell May they rest in peace those men who died for Ireland In the lonely woods of Upton far away
Some were thinking of their mothers, wives and sweethearts Some were thinking of their dear old Irish homes Did they think of how they drilled along the valley When they marched out from Cork City to their doom
The warning cry rang out: 'Fix your bayonnets' And those gallant lads they fixed them for the fray Gallantly they fought and died for dear old Ireland In the lonely woods of Upton far away
