As I was walking one evening fair, Is mé go déanach i mBaile Sheáin' by Donncha Rua Mac Conmara

Eugene sang this song in Boyle about 2 years ago, but the original RTE link is no longer leading anywhere, so here's a new one (same singer), from Michael Fortune's collection on FaceBookAodán Ó Ceallaigh singing 'As I was walking one evening fair, Is mé go déanach i mBaile Sheáin' [St John’s, Newfoundland], a song by Donncha Rua Mac Conmara, (1715–1810).
