The version I am Looking for is an English language version. The only people I have heard singing this version were my grandfather and a singer from West Limerick called Tom Greaney. The 1st verse is as follows:
O her father had riches galore.
In cattle and corn and wealth.
Broad lands by the wide Avonmore.
While I had but youth and good health.
For she's the fair maid I adore
and her fond love she's plighted to me
without riches or bright golden store.
Is ar Eireann ni neosfainn ce hi
There are at least two more verses. Can anybodt help?
