Thanks Martin, I'm sure that's what he says - I suspected it was a Gaelic word but since I don't speak the language, I couldn't be sure. I suppose we English speakers could say "Father" there.

I don't know what happenned to the body of my second message up there - I had posted a correction for verse 2, line six: it should be twelve months instead of nine months.

Note also that the tune is my best approximation of the basic tune. You'll have to add the flourishes, embellishments, ornamentation, etc. yourself.
