GUEST,Learaí na Láibe Rocks of Bawn - Meaning? (132* d) RE: ROCKS OF BAWN - MEANING? 27 Jun 04

That song 'West Rutland Marble Bawn' was based on the Rocks of Bawn it appears. The composer used 'bawn' as the Irish adjective 'bán'i.e. 'white'.

The marble bawn = The white marble.

The adjective follows the noun in Irish.

Just my opinion, can't see any other sense.
