GUEST,firínne Authors of Irish Songs (37) RE: Authors of Irish Songs 18 May 02


I may be a bit late with this...........but kine is the word. One example is the song 'The Snowy-breasted Pearl'. Quote 'There are maidens would be mine....with wealth in land and kine...'. Kine is another word for cattle, a sign of being well-to-do, not necessarily rich though!
