1) I'm in favour of 'o'er the sunrise' as the gloaming is defined as the period just before sunrise, a time when things unearthly might happen.

2)I am in agreement with Bellanagare County Roscommon, due to the fact that approximatly 13km due east of Bellanagare lies the village of Elphin also County Roscommon. This would ammend the line to: ' Through the night where the Elphin storm winds whistle'.

I live in Galway and the predominant winds are from S.West and West (mild and wet). The Elphin to Bellanagare wind would be an easterly (cold in winter and not unusually stormy)
I saw Al O'Donnell in Galway recently but unfortunatly he did'nt sing the Cúilín.
