Subject: RE: Quiet Land of Erin
What are you at, Willa - quoting me from one of the other threads (for which I see links have been provided), as if you were going to look for the other translation? One of Seán's relatives did write the words out for me, gave them to someone else to give to me ... they got mislaid. so I didn't get that other translation...I think Seán did his translation as a request for singer and media producer Davy Hammond. The translation posted above is by Mary O'Hara's sister Joan. I think 'leanndubh' should be 'lionndubh', a black mood.
