I'm sorry guest, but are you taking the piss?

There are a number of us here who spend considerable time trying to help people who are too lazy to learn how to use a search engine.

Sometimes I wonder why I do it.

If this is an attempt at a joke, very funny, ha ha

If this is a serious request PROVIDE SOME FUCKING INFORMATION!"

Sorry for the rant, I feel a bit calmer now

Sara, we need a few more hints. Is that last phrase Gaelic? (I don't speak it myself, so I'm guessing.) Where did you hear it? Is it a song, a tune? Since you're signed on as a guest, how can we contact you? You can join (for free), or give us an e-mail address.

Sara, I apologize on behalf of the rest of us for Zebedee. He's had a rough day. Normally he's friendlier.

Ainé is one of our resident gaelic speakers but she seems to be out for a spell; I'll see if I can rouse her on the email side.

Mousethief,

I'd be grateful if you didn't presume what 'sort of day' someone you have never met may have had, or 'apologise' on behalf of someone that you are almost certain never to meet

Please don't do it again

Thank you

You most probably have tried this but if you haven't, I typed the phrase stor mo chroi into a search engine called GOOGLE and came up with too many links to music and lyrics to list here. Some were complete Gaelic songs and some in English with this phrase used as is.

Okay,

Two Google searches for the words "chroise" and then "bi a losa" came up with this. One alternative title is The Trip to Sligo, and the other is "Jesus, Be in My Heart".
Click here http://www.folkrose.it/page5.html

Bi a Iosa, im chroise – The trip to Sligo


Click here http://www.reliablehost.com/planetearthmusic/CelticSpirit.htm "William Coulter's stunning acoustic guitar fingerpicking on "Bi a losa, im Chroi-se" ("Jesus, Be in My Heart")."

There is even a music sample of this tune on this page.

The gif (sheet music) is here for the original jig - so it isn't a slow, haunting tune but a rollicking dance tune so it is all in the way that you play it, but:
Click here http://www.blackflute.com/music/tunes/jigs/tsligo.html

and the midi & ABC files are available to download on the same page.

Somebodys grouchy!

Sara, these words do not exist as far as the search (even google) is concerned. Now, I may be wrong, but SARA HURLS is a suspicious name to wewhohavebeenfooledbefor. If I'm wrong I apologize strongly.

Now, if I'm not, these words may be a puzzle, kinda like "whatagoosiam". If we took out all the o's or strung the letters differently, maybe we'd come up with a secret message. ;-) If it is, I may not want to know what the message is. ;-0

Mousethief,

I am a civilized human being, and a hunt through my posts would confirm that.

Most of my posts are answers to 'guest' questions, Very rarely do any of them reply, and almost never is a 'thank you' posted.

This is what annoys me, and I think you'll find the same opinion amongst many 'catters. Some don't even bother to search anymore.

My frustration caused me to use bold text and write an expletive.

If this means that I'm 'just an arsehole' then I'd be wary of your judgement.

Zeb, thanks for the much more calm response. I was trying to prevent the guest from being scared away by your attack-mode post. I didn't want him/her to think that this is the sort of reception that newcomers can usually expect from Mudcat. When somebody flames a newbie, it makes us all look bad, not just the flamer. It's a black mark against Mudcat as a group, and that's a group of which I am a member. Thus the on-behalf-of-us-all apology. If you don't get this, Spaw gives logic lessons, and Kendall is his backup.

If one loses his/her cool so badly that somebody else steps in and apologizes for him/her, the gracious thing to do is to let it stand, not attack the apologizer. That just makes the flamer look like more of an asshole than the original flame did, which is presumably why Lepus Rex told you not to be a dickweed (whatever THAT means).

And I must agree with Lepus that if you're answering lyric/music requests in order to harvest warm fuzzies from thank-yous, you're doing it for the wrong reason.

Alex

The modern term for 'non sequitures' is 'thread drift'

Subject: RE: help I need some music

Not really. A non-sequitur has no relation to what has gone before; it's something that comes totally out of left field. A thread drift, on the other hand, is just that: drift, not total change of direction. It usually arises when a topic related to the original topic comes up.

Subject: Lyr Add: A STÓR MO CHROÍ
From: Jeri
Date: 09 Jan 01 - 06:34 PM

Will you kids knock it off before granny Jeri has to smack you both and put you to bed without any gruel?

I'm betting this is the wrong song, but it has a correct phrase in it. (Maybe the whole thing in Gaelic would be closer.)

A Stór Mo Chroí

A Stór Mo Chroí, when you're far away
From the home you will soon be leaving.
And its many's the time by night and day
Your heart will sorely be grieving.
Though the stranger's land is rich and fair,
And rich in treasures golden --
You'll pine I know, for the long, long ago
And the love that's never olden.

A Stór Mo Chroí, in the stranger's land
There is plenty of wealth and earnings.
Gold and gems adorn the rich and the grand
And there are faces with hunger tearing.
Though the road is weary and hard to thread
And the lights of their cities may blind you
You'll turn A Stór for Erin's shore
And the ones you left behind you.

A Stór Mo Chroí when evening sun
Over mountains meadows is falling
Won't you turn away from the throng and listen
And maybe you'll hear me calling.
Though the voice you'll hear is surely mine
For someone's speedy returning
A roon a roon -- won't you come home soon
To the one who will always love you.

As a non-Irish speaker, it looks to me like Sarah is looking for three separate Irish songs/tunes:
  1. bi losa im chroise
  2. stor mo chroi
  3. an bposadh bhi gcana

Helen has provided links to the first one, Jeri has posted the second which is also here in the Digital Tradition database. That just leaves #3 and I'm sure someone like Aine, Philippa or Annraoi would be able to dig it out.

I'm not going to get involved in an argument between two other regulars, regardless of my own opinions as to which of them contributes more of lasting value here.  So far as ag an bposadh bhi gcana is concerned, all I can do at the moment is point you to this reference to Ag an bPosadh Bhi i gCana:  Sreanga Oir (John Feeley  :"At the Wedding Feast of Cana". [Gael Linn].  Maybe that recording will provide more information for you.

...and as far as answering questions...

1) I freely answer any question if it interests me.

2) I freely answer any question I'm capable of if it saves our resident scholars some time. (that way, they can talk about more topics that interest me)

3) I freely answer any question that I happen to remember a specific Mudcat thread discussing.

4) I freely answer any question I happen to know the answer to and happen to have some time. (And if I have time, I'll use SuperSearch for someone else.)

5) Sometimes, just as a whim, I am intrigued with searching the 'net for something obscure.

I've noticed that my Internet correspondences have changed...the tone of inquiries is more insistent, and seldom is there a thank-you...

But numerous people were kind to me along the way, and I just like to "pass it on."

Hi Sara! Don't know if already got the information you need, but there's a version of Sto mor chroi sung by Bonnie Raitt on a Dubliners album titled "Tears of Stone",I think.

I don't know why this keeps getting refreshed, there have been much worse flames here.

I would like to apologise to Mousethief for making an uncalled for comment about his religion.

It was wrong and totally unjustified, I didn't even really mean it. So I apologise completely.

Everything else I wrote was from a nice guy who was feeling cross

I keep refreshing it to make sure that Sara finds the answers to her questions.

Apart from having to wade through the toddler tantrums (grin) she would also possibly have trouble finding her thread again with its very generic title. It may not be obvious percentage-wise if you did a word-count, but the reason that this thread was initiated was to find the answers to some questions.
