Thread Name: Who wrote 'Young Ned of the Hill'
Subject: RE: who wrote what
The song Ned of the Hills is a translation from a traditional Gaelic song. Somebody else may be able to come up with the title. It escapes me at present. I am not aware of Terry Woods writing a song with the same title, are adapting a traditional version.

I sang it in the house one evening, and my wife was surprized. She knew of it in Gaelic, but had never heard it in English, I'd never previously heard it in Gaelic. We really must try talking to each other more often. :-) If nobody else comes up with the Gaelic version, I'll post again.
