Two things, if people would be so kind. One is this: I'd like to find a recording of the Taoiseach's official salute, Amhrán Dóchais - not sung, but an orchestral or wind version.

The other is a poem called something like The Hill of Tulane or On Tulane's Hill - anyone know this?

Gratitude waiting hopefully in store for helpful Cats.

Subject: [PW] Re-post: Poem request: Tulane's Hill

(Several years ago I posted this question, got some intriguing leads,
nothing that satisfied the patron, who is still searching. I figured
perhaps now it was time to try again; perhaps new listmembers might
recognize it, or veteran listmembers might have come across new leads in
the interim.)

An adult patron is trying to find a poem she remembers from sometime in
grade school (mid-1960's - early 1970's), possibly in a much older book.
She remembers the fragments below as being the beginning of the poem.

She says it's possible that the verbs should be in past tense ("stood,"
"came", etc.), and there may or may not be lines between "cold and grey"
and "A monk comes toiling" etc. She's pretty certain that the poem was a
long one.

> I stand on the brow of Tulane's hill
> on the eve of All Hallow's Day
> ....................................still
> .....[mist? fog?]........cold and grey
> ........................................
> A monk comes toiling over [o'er?] the hill
> from an age that is seen no more
> ........................................
> .................................shore

Any help -- pointers, suggestions, longshot guesses -- would be
appreciated. A positive ID of the poem and its author, and the full
would be greeted with shouting and acclaim.

The above is from a Google of the following:

The only Tulane I know of is Tulane University. Is there another Tulane?

This person is still searching - and there's a suggestion from someone else that it might have been in an Australian schoolbooks. Any bells ringing? Anyone?
