Kennedy-Fraser's book is in our library. Shall I look it up or is the excerpt from Bassin/Tolmie above sufficient? I correct myself on Oran na Maighdean-Mhara; the songs is the words of the deserted husband whose wife has returned to the sea. I've put the words of that song in another thread. I also typed in an Irish song with a similar theme, though I fear there are minor inaccuracies in the text.
