HERE's one of several songs of that name (..of... rather than ...on..). Despite the notes, only the title is a translation of the Irish.

Regards

Or you can go to www.poguetry.com for a complete set of the lyrics written by T. Woods and R. Kavana. It's not a literal translation of Eammon An Cnuic, which is the more traditional Gaelic version.

There are at least three versions of "Ned of the Hill" (not on) in DigiTrad. To find them, put [Ned of the Hill] - in brackets - in the DigiTrad Lyrics Search box and click "Go."

"Who sings Lady..." is part of a line from Ned of the Hill.  As a rule, the best way to find such things is via the "Digitrad and Forum Search" which can be seen on the main Forum Page.

The incorrect title suggests to me that Sussie may want the set recorded by Kate Rusby and Kathryn Roberts, who mistakenly gave it thus on their eponymous CD.  A transcription can be seen here:  Kate Rusby and Kathryn Roberts, and has probably also been posted in the Forum at some point.

I had rather hoped that nobody would post to the duplicate thread Sussie accidentally started at the same time as this one, but it's been done now.  More stuff to search through next time...

Since the damage is done, I'll mention that the third version in the DT seems to be the closest to the Irish Language version.
