Thread Name: Lyr Req: Nil 'na La - a Halloween song?
Subject: RE: Níl 'na Lá - a Halloween song
I never thought of it as a Halloween song. The theme is quite like the Wild Rover. The landlady won't serve the narrator after hours until she's see's the money, then it's a big welcome. Are we talking of the same song, Mian? I have a couple of versions that I could type out if you want.
Something happened with your typing of Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin's name. Other artists include Clannad and Jimmy Crowley.
