John, who is the teacher? I'm going to visit family in New York sometime next year, I think.
Alice and Wolfgang - You can find the full macaronic Maidrin Rua as sung by Mary O'Hara in her book, A Song for Ireland. I'll type them in on a thread next year (look out for it around 8-12 Jan. I've also heard the song sung completely in Irish, apart from the word 'Tally-ho'.
Don't forget,everybody, neither Irish nor English has to be in the song for it to be valuable to this thread!
