April 20th 2013 in Boyle

Dark-eyed gypsies, the military, shot dogs and horsemeat, last Saturday in Dodds.

The Bonny Light Horseman, this version I do believe, (Brian Leahy instead of Phil Callery in this 1983 recording).

The blog writer can't be every where and was absent nearer to where Kevin was singing about: Cavan and Thom Moore's Cavan girl. From around the same time as the Scholar or the Train to Sligo - which nobody sang the other night.

But the most important thing ... Brian and Eileen are back!

Gather up for next month, May, and remember the change of date, for the month of May only, the FOURTH Saturday instead of the third.


Márta 2013

An lá roimh Lá Fhéile Phádraig.
Slua maith ag an seisiún, mar is gnách. Amhráin as Bearla agus as Gaeilge.
Chan Clíona:

Bhíos lá 'le Pádraig, is mé im shuí i dtigh an tábhairne
bhí cuideacht' álainn lem' ais ag ól.
Bhí maighre mánla, na gcuacha mbán ann
A súil mar an áirne, 's a grua mar snó.
Bhí dís deartháir ann, 'na suí ós cionn cláir ann
A thug searc is grá don réalthainn óig:
Fear súiste 's rámhainne, 's máistir scoláirí
A scríobh a lán is a léigh go leor.

... bíonn a rogha ag an mbean, agus is beag rómánsaíocht atá ag baint leis an scéal - piocann sí
"An téigh gur léir leis, chun tís a dhéanamh,
Is é ba mhéin liomsa 'theacht im threo"!

Agus tuige nach mbeadh.

Ar aghaidh linn go lá Valentín. Beidh an lá sin thart, fán am go gcastar ar a chéile sinn arís, ar an 20 Aibreán, ach b'fhéidir go mbeidh an grá seachas an ghruaim san aer?
