Subject: conall o'gallchoir
From: GUEST,ciarili
Date: 22 Mar 02 - 05:05 PM

Hello, out there...

I have several songs sung by Conall O'Gallchoir that I've no words for. Here's the lot of them:

cailin dan
cnoc an oiarraidh
daitlileir
mailidh mhodhmhar
ni fheicfhearr nios mo tha a mhuirnin

I know this sort of creates a thread problem, but they make 5 threads separately, so you guys can tell me which way you'd like to see me make a request like this!

Btw, they're lower case because I always do searches that way, and with no fadas. It returns a broader bunch of results. I'm thinking some of the spelling is bogus, too, but I'm not certain.

Thanks ahead of time,

ciarili

Just want to clarify that I'll never make a request until I've looked at my books, looked in the database, and looked on google.com! But I do have quite a few more I can't find, and they're niggling me....

Hallo Ciarili, Did you ever get these lyrics? I notice that the other ones you asked for had been posted. I'd like to get all the lyrics of the Conal Gallchoir CD Ar Imeall an Chuain if I could find them. Can you help? Go raibh maith agat.

Subject: Lyr Add: THE DARLING CAILIN BAN
From: Sorcha
Date: 08 Oct 02 - 03:15 PM

Is it "ban" or "dan"? I found this, called the Darling Cailin Ban.....correct???

THE DARLING CAILIN BAN
In the golden vale of Limerick beside the Shannon stream,
The maid lives who holds my heart n(?) she she haunts me like a dream,
With shining showers of golden hair, as gentle as the fawn
And cheeks that make the red rose pale, my darling Cailin Ban.


Although she seldom speaks to me I look on her with pride,
For seven long years I courted her & asked her for my bride,
But dreary times & cold neglect are all from her I've drawn
For I am but a labouring boy and she is a Cailin Ban.


To leave old Ireland far behind runs often in my mind,
And wander far, another bride and country for to find
Then I would never see her more or on her footsteps fawn
For she's the breaking of my heart, my darling Cailin Ban.

Her beauty it is far beyond all other females fine,
She is far brighter than the sun that does all on us shine,
All night she does disturb my rest, I cannot sleep till dawn,
Still wishing that she would be my bride my Darling Cailin Ban.


The girls of Limerick take the sway throughout old Erin's shore,
They bravely fought within the gates, and won, in days of yore,
They kept away the enemy all night, until the dawn,
The worthiest of their daughters is my Darling Cailin Ban.

The threads including some of the lyrics Ciarilí was seeking are:

An Baitsiléir

Mailidh Mhodhmhar

Ní fheicfhearr níos mó thú, a mhuirnín

another spelling correction: Cnoc an Dírigh is a hill near Anagaire/Annagry.
lyrics added to Mudcat - Cnoc an Dírigh

Unfortunately, Conall's CD doesn't contain lyrics in the sleeve notes. though perhaps the record company would oblige if you sent them a request and an SAE (or International Reply Coupons). In the meantime, we are doing what we can via the internet.

Mo Chailín Bán
Seachran Chairn tSiall is another song on Connie's album which has already been posted at Mudcat
Is Fada Liom Uaim Í in uaigneas 'ach baile a mbíonn sí has also been recorded by Maighr&#ad Ní Dhomhnaill and perhaps by Caitl&#n Ní Dhomhnaill. The song is published in S. Ó Baoighill with R Ó Frighil & A. Ó Duibheannaigh, "Cnuasacht de Cheoltaí Uladh". That wee book also contains "Seachran Chairn Siadhail" and "A Mhuire 's a Rí" (second part of track 2 on Conall's album "Ar Imeall an Chuain".
"A Mhuire 's a Rí" can also be found in M. Ó hEidhin, "Cas Amhrán", available from Cló Iar-Chonnachta and maybe in Ó Baoill "Ceolta Gael"

more re Connie's songs:
"A Mhuire 's a Rí" can indeed be found in M Ó Baoill, "Ceolta Gael 2" and in "Traditional Songs of the North of Ireland", compiled by Liam Ó Conchubhair & Derek Bell (Dublin: Wolfhound Press, 1999) which also contains some other songs which are on Connie's CD: Ba Loinnireach Grian an Tráthnóna and Méilte Cheann Dubhrann. Seachrán Charn tSíail is published as "Ar Tharraignt Siar go Carn tSíail Domh" and "The Rake of Carnteel" , but apart from the first verse, the words are different from those Conall sings, as is also the case with the version in Ó Baoill and recorded by Albert Fry which I posted on an appropriate thread.
Unfortunately, the table of contents in "Traditional Songs of the North of Ireland" gives only English language versions of song-titles ... "Sandhills of Khandooran" looks more to me like a title for a song set in Arab lands than one set in Donegal!

"Is Fada Liom Uaim Í" is also published in M Ó Baoill, "Ceolta Gael 2" (Cork: Mercier Press, 1986)It has been recorded by both Maighréad Ní Dhomhnaill and Caitlín Ní Dhomhnaill.
