On the grounds of Glencormac, a beautiful estate near Wicklow, in Ireland, are some grand old yew trees, under which the Gardener's Chronicle narrates that, it is said, many years ago, the well-known song of "Robin Adair" was composed by a Scotch lady who had fallen in love with the lord of the soil, the property then being in the hands of the Adair family, and known as Grove Hill. It was at this very spot the lovesick lady composed those touching verses, which so plaintively told of her woe at her lover's change of feelings towards her.
