Subject: Do Ulster fishermen sing of the Orange?

That is: In dying, do Ulstermen sing of the Sailor's Orange?

But the real subject is the farewell of a dying fisherman, who sings about the Green of his kind. Why don't I say that, then? Well, whatever I try, I get no hits on that title.

Part of the problem is that the search no longer seems to function. I know we had at least one thread(-let) about whether it's "ON" Fisherman's Green, or "AT" or "IN", but until I can find the exactly right noun for the title, I can't find what the correct preposition is.

Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Bye,
Mysha

Isn’t it ‘Fiddler’s Green’?

Hi,

It most definitely is about "Fiddler’s Green". But do you know how hard it is to get the spelling of "Fiddler" right if you don't know that it includes a 'd'?

Thanks.

Anecdote: So, I did a quick check to raise my spirit, and YouTube gave me a version with subtitles. And what do I see as the Danish (or similar) translation of the title: Words that translated to "Fishermen's heaven"!
It's not like I am the only idiot; it's just that the naming was done by a different type of idiot.

OK, now to go see what the preposition in "over Fiddler's Green" is.

Bye,
Mysha

Hi Mysha - my apologies for behaving like a smart-ass, I didn’t realise you’re Danish and, presumably, English isn’t your first language!

Best wishes,
BWM

Hi Backwoodsman,

No offence taken, at least by me. It might be that YOU feel you could have been more informative, but where I am concerned: You told me exactly what I needed to know.

And the reason you didn't realise I'm Danish, is probably that I am Frisian. English is indeed not my first language, but ours is one of the closest languages to it. It has been said before that we form a unique bridge between the languages of the Isles on one hand and the languages of Scandinavia on the other.

Thanks,
Mysha

Thanks Mysha, I think you’re the first Frisian person I’ve ever spoken to!
All the best, BWM.
