Lyr Req: Mrs McGrath (from The Dubliners)

From: Tomnoscar

I'm trying to find the lyrics to a Dubliners song called "Mrs McGrath". This is NOT the "Mrs McGrath" that tells of a sailor who gets his legs blown off in an C18th sea battle but the story of "Keiran" (?) who gets sent down from University. It is, however the same tune as the older version. Any ideas?

You noticed the Alex Campbell version I posted in that thread? I think there are a few more too. We're a prolific breed.

Anonymous Guest, a Gaelic version was posted to another thread here at Mudcat. The header should give you enough information to find it:
