a note about singing this song to "The Ten Penny Bit" - adjust the dance tune to suit singing. One characteristic of dance tunes is that they usually have two, and sometimes more, parts which are usually repeated twice. In the song, the parts aren't repeated. The verse goes to the first, or A part, and the chorus "Mo choileach breá ramhar a rugadh sa Mhárta ..." to the second or B part. So if you chose at times to omit the chorus, say between the 3rd and 4th verse, at that point you will only be singing the A part.
I hope you can understand my English!
