beachcomber Lyr Req: The Barge of Gorry Crovan / Gorrie Crovan (10) RE: Lyr Req: The Barge of Gorry Crovan / Gorrie Crovan 25 Oct 19


Came upon this thread when searching for the song Birlinn Ghoraidh Chrobhain and as I did not see any really confident translation for the name "Chrobhain" I thought that it might be one of those Gaelic names that described some pecularity of the person.
We have had "of the Long Hand" , Of the Red Arm" , "Of the Hundred Battles" etc., so I wondered if some Scottish Gaelic scholar can tell if this name could be "Of the White Arm" ?
The song is beautiful, especially when sung in harmony as Hall & McGregor do it on their LP "THE NEXT TONIGHT WILL BE..." a CLP 1715 from EMI 1963.
