Subject: RE: My Lagan Love
Just a couple of points about possibly confused words:

As I have it "she 'stirs' the bogwood fire".

And, "I through the door in-peep" - i.e. peep in through the door.

I have been singing just the first two verses and then repeating the first for many years. On 16 Oct 2005 at The Membly Hall Hotel in Falmouth, Cornwall, England (the present venue for the autumn leg of The Voice Tour) I heard an Ulsterman (by his accent) sing it with Guitar accompaniment to a slightly different tune from the one I use and with many more verses. This prompted me to consult the Mudcat.

Thanks for all the info.
