Thread Name: Lyr Req: For Ireland I'd Not Tell Her Name
Subject: RE: Lyr/ For Ireland I'd tell not her name
yes, Kate Bush sang/ recorded Mná na hÉireann. She got a lot of coaching on pronunciation.
I think Sting just sung English lyrics for Mo Ghille Mear (often spelled with one l, but that's a long story)

See previous thread (clickable links above) for reference to the tune of Ar Éirinn Ní n-Eosfainn Cé hÍ being sung in Rumania and references to publications of the melody.
