Fenian, Castle of Dromore was recorded by Clancy Brothers/Tommy Makem under the title "October Winds", and is in the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem Songbook, which can be purchased thru the Mudcat. Click on 'Support the Mudcat' and choose either or Barnes and Noble. The sonbook is available from either bookseller.

Another lullaby they recorded that I really like is " Singin' Bird". The DT has it with the title of "My Singing Bird", two verses as recorded by Jean Redpath. The Clancy Brothers' version has another verse and a chorus not in the DT.

Additional verse for "Singin' Bird"

Oh, I will climb a high, high tree
And I'll rob a wild bird's nest.
And I'll bring back my singin' bird
To the arms that I love best.
But there's none of them can sing so sweet
My singin' bird as you.
Aah_______ aah___________
My singin' bird, as you.
