There's a beautiful tune in "The Irish Mandolin" Tutor book called Gleanntan Glas Gaoith Dobhairn. Someone sang me some lyrics which may be called "Shamrock Shore" or something similar. Any ideas out there?

It is indeed one of several songs with that title. Have a look in the Digital Tradition (DT search box) under that title. there are a number of versions around.

Couldn't find it in the DT so :-

Cead slan ag sleibhte maorga ChontaeDhun na nGall
Agus dha chead slan ag an Eargal ard in a stua os cionn caor is coll
Nuair a ghluais mise thartle Loch Dhun Luich go ciuin sa ghleann ina lui
I mo dhiaidh bhi gleanntain ghlas Ghaoth Dobhair, is beag nar bhris mo chroi

Ag taisteal dom amach tri chnoic Ghleann Domhain's an Mhucais ar mo chul
Ni miste dom 'ra le bron 's le cra gur frasach a shil mise suil
Go Meiricea siar a bhi mo thriall i bhfad thar an fharraige mhor
D'fhag me slan ar feadh seal' ag Dun na nGall is ag gleanntain glas Ghaoth Dobhair

Slan, slan go foill, a Dhun na nGall, a chontae sheimh gan smal,
Is do d'fheara breath' in am an gha nar umhlaigh riamh roimh Ghall;
Ta ait i mo chroi do gach fear's gach mnaoi, is gach paiste beag agus mor
Ata beo go buan gan bhuairt gan ghruaim fa ghleanntain ghlas'Ghaoth Dobhair

Proinsias O Maonaigh

Sorry can't do fadas on keyboard

By the way the English version is known as Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore

Just for interest, I think the man who wrote it was (or is) the father of Mairead Ni Maonaigh from "Altan"

I've done the best I could to crosslink interrelated threads. See the crosslinks above - I'm not sure whether these all fit together, or not. When you deal with two languages, it makes it even more confusing.

Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore is the same tune, not same lyrics (not a translation)

see also the Green Fields of Gweedore thread. Green Fields of Gaoth Dobhair is an entirely different song, but a translation (by the author, Prionsias Ó Maonaigh)is included in the thread

Hi Emma B,

The fadas are found by pressing alt together with the letter you want lengthened.....
