Would anybody have the words for the macaronic Irish-English song The Fair Maids of Loughrea? Its history would also be great. I can't find any record of it online apart from this fantastic version[/url] from Carna's Jimmy Connolly (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Mm5nhVbV78). Thanks a million.

Think I know what you're talking about - but cant check link at moment. If you search here on "Loughrea", you may find the songs involved. Not really a macaronic but two related songs , one in Irish, one in English. I'll get back with more detail tomorrow, if possible.

Regards

Thanks. Appreciated. Did a search for "Loughrea" and there are elements of the song I'm talking about mentioned in the lyrics for Lady of Loughrea (http://mudcat.org/Detail.CFM?messages__Message_ID=2432589) and The Pretty Girls of Loughrea (http://mudcat.org/Detail.CFM?messages__Message_ID=2617976) but no trace of the Irish in the English of either song so perhaps you're right about Jimmy Connolly's version being, in fact, two different songs. Look forward to more info on this. Thanks.
