The Best to you.

Using Max's handy new three year search in the Filter/Age box, I found a thread from 97, using just the term, rathlin. It did't seem to add much to the discussion, though. The body search part of the Enhanced Search seems to still not be working, or we could find it.

From: SingsIrish Songs

Here's what I transcribed from the version by Barley Bree. However, there are a couple words I just can't make out (in brackets below). The first word I haven't a clue--sounds like "glassen" but that's not a word in my dictionary...the other I decided could be "gales" but Barley Bree makes it sound more like "gallets"... If anyone knows the particular words (or any other corrections for that matter), please, please, please post them...

Rathlin Island Boat Song

Ref: Sailing Southwards from Rathlin Island
Past Fair Head and by Murlough Bay
With a north wind to glide us onwards
What care we for the wind or spray

We've been fishing since morning early
When the sun first shown on th ebay.
We've a fine catch of life and [glassen],
Six wee codlings for Friday's tea.

It's the life for a man of freedom
With a good boat and trusty crew.
With the sea for his relm and kingdom
And the wild seals and [gales] too.

We'll be home by the evening surely
Sailing south with the flowing tide.
We'll be met there by Henry Andy
For a pint or two to Ring McBride's.

Alison,

I bet that's it!

With the sea for his relm and kingdom
And the wild seals and gannets too.

Makes sense to me!

Thanks,

Mary

Hi
did you know that the people on Rathlin do not consider Sailing Southwards to be a song about the Island.
Songs from Rathlin are The Enchanted Isle, The Fkashing Lights. Rathlin Island, Fear An Bhata and Donal agus Morag
