Ard Macha, I also have Delia's version of it, I love it. Through all her life she never lost one bit of her Connemara accent, and she moved in some high social circles for years. There was a movie with the song in it,, it may have been " She wore a yellow ribbon", it was when some cavalry officers were outside the cottage of I think Maureen O'Hara", it was the night before her wedding and they sang it for her. They only played it he first night in the Hippodrome in Belfast, there was a minor riot, so they cut the song out of the movie the next night and all other nights.

Only in Belfast - what ?
