Back on 19 Jul 02 - 04:46 PM, kytrad gave a phonetic spelling for a line which I assume is Irish Gaelic:

"Pwr-tyn-h'yan-a-tee, th' synnin philobe- hyula"

Can anyone supply the correct Irish spelling of this line, and an English translation? Or is it nonsense?

What about the word "cucanandy"—does that mean anything, or is it nonsense?

Are there more Irish words to this song?
