Its in Dt under Bridget O'Malley. Just type Bridget into the box and it comes up as number 8 on the list. Sorry coloured clickies against me at the moment.

It is in the DT at http://www.mudcat.org/@displaysong.cfm?SongID=920. I must learn the words one day. I love the melody.

Thanks Barry. BTW, One of my pass times is going over there and browsing and singing along. I wonder how many others do that.

The original is in Irish language. See Liam Hart's Gaelic Song Archinves

Barry T, thanks for that link. A very tastefull arrangement of "Bríd Óg Ní Mháille" - musically that is. I'm not too sure of the attempt at anglicisation, though. When you know the original, nothing else ever lives up to it. Annraoi
