Dear Fergie,

Many thanks for your speedy reply and for taking the time to send it to me.

Aine, I have just come back from the Gower Folk Festival where I heard it sung by Maggie Boyle, accompanied on guitar by Clive Carroll. I bought her CD which it's on. It's called 'Gweebarra' and is on Pure Records, (1998). The version she sings is actually a little different from the one supplied by Fergie although it's obviously the same song.

Could you perhaps help me learn how to pronounce the title properly for singing, ideally could you provide a phonetic spelling for English? Many thanks if you can
