This is very similar to the Snowy Breasted Pearl.
Does anyone know the history to either. I know that the"Pearl" was translated from "Pearla an Bhrollaigh Bhan (I know accents are missing), by George Petrie (1790-1866).
I always think that songs of unrequitted love are the most poignant.
I always think that my spelling/typing skills are atrocious.
Cheers
