Susanne - don't bother too much about the meaning of the text, I just wanted to point out how difficult it can be to understand something you think you don't understand ...
But I meanwhile found the tape I was referring to and I think it's worth mentioning, especially because it is available in Germany and also because it doesn't look like some considerable folk issue - AND I still believe I once saw a CD version.
It's labelled "- ON THE ROAD - Another Feast of Irish Folk" with a red Volvo 480 ES on its front, Polydor 829 741-4. This is one of my better tapes: It also contains a quite good version of "Snowy Breasted Pearl", one of the best versions of "The Green Fields of France" (also done by Fureys & Davey Arthur), the best version I know of "The Rare Ould Times" (Danny Doyle with piano), "The Boys of Killybegs" done by Tommy Makem himself (Great!) and - first of all - "Thios chois na tra domh" by Clannad: What a song!!!!! (Recently we had a whole thread about it but I simply can't find it to create a clicky - *sigh*).
All of the best
