"From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Gartan Mother's Lullaby" is an old Irish song and poem written by Herbert Hughes and Seosamh Mac Cathmhaoil, first published in Songs of Uladh [Ulster] in 1904. Hughes collected the traditional melody in Donegal the previous year and Campbell wrote the lyrics. The song is a lullaby by a mother, from the parish of Gartan in the lovely County Donegal. The song refers to a number of figures in Irish mythology, places in Ireland and words in the Irish language."


Notorious is used to mean 'having a very bad reputation' or can also simply mean 'being famous for.' The second usage is getting rarer and rarer.
