To correct my earlier post. The singer's name is Nóra Ghriallais. She is from Muicneamh idir Dhá Sháile, Reputedly the longest place name in Ireland. I think the name of the recording is Traditional Connemara Singing. The Irish Gaelic version seems to be a recent composition. Except for the refrain, the words seem to be completely different. I am trying to transcribe it now, but there are gaps, partly because of my comprehension, partly because the producer,apologetically added accordions ans whistles to otherwise singing of a quality that pales about any other singer I have ever heard.
