Subject: RE: Macarónachas / Macaronic Songs. Language mixi
Only Cruiscín Lán, and I sing Maidrin Ruadh all in English in a version I put together from O'Hara's album notes, so the only part of that I sing in Gaelic are the words 'Maidrin Ruadh'. Since I don't really speak Gaelic, I only sing what I have listened to for years and am sure of pronunciation. There is a Gaelic Immersion language, music, dance workshop for 4 days in January in Missoula, MT, but I can't attend, unfortunately. Does 'The Juice of the Barley' count? There are only a few words in the chorus in Irish.

And how did you know my name is Flynn?
