Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Flower of Sweet Strabane
Subject: RE: flower of sweet strabane
I've been listening to Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill's version of this song on her CD No Dowry. In the back of my mind is the thought that I've heard the same tune used in a song that's sung in Irish. Does anyone know what song it might be? I can't think of the words -- I seem to remember hearing it at a pub one night in Donegal. Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
