Subject: RE: Tune Req: Glenroe theme / Cuaichin Ghleann Neifin
I see in earlier messages "The tune of this song is the air of a well-known Connaught song Cuaichín Ghleann Néifin (ÓTuama:1955) and is also used for Chaith Mé Seacht Seachtainí i Mainistir na Búille, recorded by Máire Ní Scolai for Gael-Linn." so does Máire Ní Scolaí not sing the verse beginning "Chaith mé seacht ..."?

I neednt have bothered with the Gort a' Charnáin thread as there is a link given here on 14 May 2003 to another thread with those lyrics. There is also a link on this page to another similar song, Ansacht na nAnsacht
