Margaret V Info Req: An Binsin Luachra (22) RE: Info Req: An Binsin Luachra 04 Jan 02

Aine, all I can add are the notes made by Seamus Ennis and Alan Lomax for the recording Lomax made of Maire O'Sullivan (Ballylicky, Cork) singing the song: "A young man meets a beautiful girl gathering rushes, which country folk once used for beds. He seduces her with fine promises. She gives him "her little bench of rushes," a kindness she soon regrets. Many Gaelic singers know and love this song..." The recording appears on the Ireland Vol. II CD of the "World Library of Folk and Primitive Music," compiled and edited by Alan Lomax (Rounder CD 1742). Margaret
