If I could afford it and had the space I'd have at least two of the tallest Irish Wolfhounds and I'd call them Oisín and Osgar. They are majestic dogs.

Redwolf - I thought you might like this. I have no idea if she's playing it well or not cause faraor I have no musical ability. My favourite Donegal song.

She was playing it rather nicely, I thought...her technique isn't great, but she put a lot of feeling into it, and that simple arrangement really suits that tune. That's one I've been thinking of arranging myself...maybe this will give me some incentive.

Supreemio, I love that song, and the pictures made me want to jump on the next plane to Ireland. There are few places in the world as heartbreakingly beautiful as Donegal.

Aye, ''it brings a lump to your throat''. :lach:

I've been to some of the places on that video, Ardara being one of the first. Funnily enough Ardara isn't even in the official Gaeltacht but centered around it.

Mo Mhadadh Beag leis an Fhear Bhán : Seaghán Bán Mac Grianna (deartháir do Sheosamh & do Shéamas)

Luím ar mo leabaidh
'Gus ní chodlaím aon néal go maidin,
Ach a' meabhrú ar mo mhadadh beag
A d'imigh uaim sa scarthanaigh.

Curfá:
Och, och, mo mhadadh beag,
Och, och, mo mhadadh beag,
Tá piachán in mo sceadamán
A' scairtigh ar mo mhadadh beag.

A choileáin bhig bhí soineanta,
'S a bhi stuama, críonna, cineálta,
D'imigh tú uaim le bánú 'n lae,
'S níor phill tú 'riamh ó shin orm.

A choileáin a bhí i ngeall orm,
Pill arís 's ná feall orm,
Nó rachaidh mé 'n éag le cumhaidh 'do dhiaidh,
Mur' bpille tú ar ball orm.

Nach iomaí maidin Shamhraidh orm,
'Sheol tú amach na gamhna domh,
Chun 'tsléibhe ruaidh is éan na cuaiche,
A' seinm ceoil 'sna gleanntáin dúinn.

Tá 'n eala ar loch na carraige,
Tá bric ar loch a' charbaid,
Tá fir a' gabháil na farraige,
I mbádaí is seoltaí geala orthu.

Gealladh coileán eile domh,
Ar acht mo chur ó mhairgnigh,
Ach ní thiocfaidh arís ceann eil' chun tí,
Ó chaill mé féin mo mhadadh beag.

Now I understand the whole song- it's so sad.
