GUEST,Annraoi Translation of Roisin dubh into english (14) RE: Translation of Roisin dubh into english 24 Jun 01

Perhapas the best known translation of this song was by James Clarence Mangan.
However, if you wamt to sing it, then a metrical translation is what is required. I don't know of one. As someone has already said, this is one of the GREAT songs in the irish Tradition and takes a great deal of technique to sing properly.
good luch, anyway.
