GUEST,Jim I Lyr Req: Droichead na Phona (6) Lyr Req: Droichead na Phona 23 Dec 06

Just watched the 20th Dec episode of Caipini on TG4 ( The presenter takes us to a bar in Dingle where a local sings "Droichead na Phona" "The Bridge of Phona(?)".

The tune is that of "She moved through the Fair" but otherwise we could not make out the words. My wife's Irish is very out of date especially when listening to a song in a thick accent.

Does anyone know the song? Was it just "She Moved Through the Fair" in Irish? Was it something else? Was it perhaps the mythical original tune to which "Fair" was set by Pat Collum?
