Thread Name: Lyr Req: Mo Ghile Mear (from Sting/Chieftains)
Subject: RE: Mo Ghile Mear
negrosoft85, the first verse you quote above to say the least. Is it meant to be a phonetic rendering of the Irish? BTW I have seen the title spelled 'Mo Ghiolla Mear'on occasions. Speaking of Sting's version of 'Mo Ghile Mear' with 'The Chieftains', some of these crossovers were more successful than others. IMO Kate Bush's 'Mná na hÉireann' was the best.
