Subject: Lyr/Tune Add: EILEEN OGE (The Dubliners)
From: Baz
Date: 12 Apr 98 - 04:49 PM

From The Dubliners CD 30 Years-a-Greying Eileen Oge

Eileen Oge and that the darlin's name is
Through the Barony her features they were famous
If we loved her who is there to blame us
for wasn't she the pride of Petravore
But her beauty made us all so shy
Not a man could look her in the eye
Boys oh Boys sure that's the reason why
We're in mournin' for the Pride of Petravore

Chorus
Eileen Oge! me heart is growin' grey
Ever since that day, you wandered far away
Eileen Oge! there's good fish in the say
But there's no one like the Pride of Petravore.

Friday at the fair of Ballintubber,
Eileen met McGrath the cattle jobber,
I'd like to set me mark upon the robber
For he stole away the Pride of Petravore.
He never seemed to see the girl at all
Even when she ogled him underneath her shawl,
Lookin' big and masterful when she was lookin' small,
Most provoking for the Pride of Petravore.
Chorus

So it went as it was in the beginning,
Eileen Oge was bent upon the winning;
Big McGrath contentedly was grinning,
Being courted by the Pride of Petravore.
Sez he "I know a girl who could knock you into fits,"
At that Eileen nearly lost her wits,
The upshot of the ruction was that now the robber sits
With his arm around the Pride of Petravore.
Chorus

Boys, O boys! with fate 'tis hard to grapple,
Of my eye 'tis Eileen was the apple,
And now to see her walkin' to the chapel
Wid the hardest featured man in Petravore.
And now boys this is all I have to say;
When you do your courtin' make no display,
If you want them to run after you just walk the other way
For they're mostly like the Pride of Petravore.
Chorus

Hi folks! I´m just back home from a trip to Greece, where I heard a greek tune played by street-musicians. And the tune resembled a lot of Eileen Óg. It always sounded strange to me, like a russian melody. Is there a connection to south-east Europe (where is Petravore?) or is the tune "imported" and new words have been written to it ? I´m just wondering...

Slan go fóill, Harald

I think it's somewhere in Mayo, but spelt a bit different.

And how come this thread is going in reverse?

As for Eileen Oge - Well it might have worked for my Big namesake, but I never found it worked well for me. (And I reckon your man had a hard time after the wedding.)

I have Eileen Oge in "Prose Poems and Parodies of Percy French" (Dublin: The Talbot Press, Limited, 1964 repr. of 1929 1st ed.), pp. 24-5.

If people need it, I will write up the words, somewhat different: e.g. the first line is:

The version in the book is almost identical to the one given at the head of this thread; it's different from the one I sing in some small details (e.g. last verse: instead of "Now boys this is all I have to say", I have "Boys O boys, take heed of what I say", etc. etc.

I have a little good news for you. Not only did I find Pedar a Voher's on an Ordnance Map of 1836 but I spoke to someone who lives very near there and is somewhat of a historian. He told me that there used to be a pub near that cross roads but it was probably gone some time before Percy French came to this area.
You can find a copy of the piece of map at http://www.bawnboy.utvinternet.com/PFS/images/Pedar-a-Vore.jpg but please be warned that it is a large file (474 KB)and may take several minutes to download on a slow internet connection.
Pedar is Peter in Irish.

hi,
an aunt of mine by marriage, told me that pedra voher was a district in northwest cavan named after peter mcgovern, one of my gggrandfather's. she said when she would go to vote, she would see that name "pedra voher's district." that was the oral history. i have seen pedra voher's name also in records. i haven't been able to trace much further though. he was also known as "peter of the road." i think his house was near a cross road's and people would be welcome there.
