Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Beir Mo Dhúthracht
Pretty interesting, that other thread. Will Hanny get the new stuff? Um, something else. Let me think... oh, yes, when I tried to search using "beir", the other thread did NOT come up. I wonder why that is.

I spent some more time this weekend working on the lyric, and I like some of the Begley & Cooney version better than the one listed here. It is quite a lovely tune as well.

I am making a little calligraphed songbook for my own personal use. So even if there is an English translation available, I usually make my own anyway. It is a great exercise for helping learn the language.

To show you how crazed i am about it, i just ordered a copy of a Dineen dictionary.
