GUEST,Annraoi Lyr Req: Maire Bhruinneal / Mhaire Bruineall (42) RE: LYR req: Maire Bhruinneal 28 Mar 01

It striles me that there are two songs here. The very first one beginning:-
"Ta bab dheas gheanamhail 'san ait nach bhfuilim Is aille maise is feachaint,
Agus gradh go dtug di thar mhnaibh na cruinne Is go brath ni thig lion a seanadh.
Ta pioba a brollaigh ar li na h-eala Ag eirghe ar maidin la greine,
Is a gnaoi comh maiseamhail le realt an earraigh Is a ciabh mar chleite an fheich dhuibh. "
has the rhythmical characteristics of a Donegal song known as "Inis Dhún Rámha." and indeed some of the ;yrics bare more than a passing resemblance to same.
The second posted by Benjamin cannot be sung to this air and is, I suggest, another song entirely.
"An Mhaighdean Mhara" is another Donegal song and has nothing whatsoever to do with the songs just mentioned.
