My grandmother had a "bush" that she called a "Wild Irish Rose" or "Wild Rose". It had long limbs growing up then falling over to the ground. When in bloom, it had small white blossoms and the most wonderful fragrance. Any idea what it is?

I believe you are looking for a rose called "St. John's Rose". It's a very, very old rose. It has white blossoms on arching branches with a deep, beautiful fragrance. You can obtain this rose from Vintage Gardens at http://www.sonic.net/cgi-bin/d....
They have many other old roses there you may also be interested in.
