Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Hiring fair songs
Those recordings have been made into an RTE CD. Sean Ó heochaidh collected the last verse from Róise later. I picked them up at a C.C.E. concert. There's a little book with additional lyrics and the whole story in it. Even at her advanced age her singing was mesmerising. I would love to get the book on her life, which I had in my hand at a gaeltacht week, but someone had all ready bought it.
