Thread Name: Dilemma with 'Siul A Ruin'
Subject: RE: Dilemma with 'Siul A Ruin'
Can you tell me what it means in Gaelic, please?? I believe a person named Áine had the original Gaelic verse for 'Siul a Ruin' I would dearly love to know what it means- I have heard renditions of "Johnny has Gone for a Soldier" and the line, "shool, shool, shool a roon" or sometimes, "shool agra" was always inserted. I assumed this was pure gibberish- please explain the whole Gaelic connection or refer me to people who can!! I am so excited! Please reply to me at the e-mail address I have given.
