A friend is looking, and can't seem to find any. Supposedly Colm Keane had a version of 7 Drunken Nights in Irish Gaelic on a field recording included in The Folk Songs of Britain, but I haven't heard it. Any other examples/ leads come to mind?

Peter Kennedy put one verse of Colm Keane's 'Our Goodman' on the Rounder CD 'Classic Ballads of Britain & Ireland' - volume 2. It is the verse about the baby having whiskers. Hardly what I would call bawdy. What about Joe Heaney's song 'Cunnla'? It used to be available on a Topic LP, but I'm not too sure where it can be heard today.

Planxty did an English translation of "Cunhla" on one of their albums.

I think the song you're looking for is Peigín 's Peadar, sung by Seosamh Ó hÉanaí. It's on his CDs Ó mo dhúcas and Traditional songs in Irish and English. And by the way, the song is incomplete!

Joe Heaney sang the song on a Collector 7inch disk. He speaks at the end - "I leave out Saturday night".

I am not sure whether the silly song about the Coconut is meant to be suggestive or not ...

sorry, link for An Cocónut lyrics is
http://www.macsuibhne.com/amhran/teacs/9.htm
and here's a clickable link for the recording on youtube

I wonder if you would consider Geaftaí Bhaile Bhuí as "bawdy"? (and by the way, I love the air and would like to have a different set of lyrics in Irish to sing to it, if anyone can suggest something suitable)

And there are lots of songs with erotic content, often quite subtle, which wouldn't be described as "bawdy".
