Subject: RE: Help: Castle of Dromore; origins and location
Now, that's interesting. The implication from that note seems to be that Boulton's English lyric was translated into Irish Gaelic by Hyde, which might explain why there seems to be no trace of an "18th century (Gaelic) original" as suggested -without evidence- at The Fiddler's Companion, as I mentioned earlier. Has anyone else come across further information since we began to discuss this one?
