Has anyone any idea of the lyrics of a song containing the words "a bhean, bhean bhreá."?
I heard my granmother singing this when I was a very young child but can only remember vague snatches. The above words occurred more than once.

Are you sure it is not " An Sean Bhean Bocht" ? pronounced " The Shan Van Vocht" The Poor Old Woman.

First verse would be


" Oh the French are in the Bay,said the Shan Van Vocht.
Oh the French are in the Bay,said the Shan Van Vocht Then the Orange will decay
Said the Shan Van Vocht.

Sorry , that should be

" Oh the French are in the Bay,said the Shan Van Vocht.
Oh the French are in the Bay,said the Shan Van Vocht
Oh the French are in the Bay
They'll be here without delay
Then the Orange will decay Said the Shan Van Vocht.

If you're still tuning in, Conny, look here http://www.smo.uhi.ac.uk/~oduibhin/doegen/nicruaidhri.htm
for words and a sound recording (recited, not sung) from Glenlark in the Sperrins. The words are about two-thirds the way down the file, and are headed "LA1216.1, Teideal: Story: Tá mé na mháistir scoile". I'd love to know where your grandmother came from.
