A quick glance at the five verse GAELIC set in Clandillon (Hyde's set as described in the note) suggests that Philippa's version from Risteard MacGabhann (1998) is a subset of Hyde, with minor changes. I'll transcribe it all .... eventually (tá sé sa sean-chló!).
p.s. Of course, now we need to find out where Clandillon's ENGLISH words came from! The note appears to refer to the tune?
