Subject: RE: Help: Shule Aroon: sell my rock, rod, reel
A very nice disscussion on "Siuil a Ruin" A woman I know who went to school in Galway tells me that dyeing the petticoat red refers to the red petticoats which were worn in connemara. Mairin sings the only verse in Irish I have come across. She tells me she learned it in school. Dath me fhein mo chota ban agus siulfadh me an domhan lan no go bhfaigh me marbh e no slan is go de tu mo mhuirnin slan etc....sorry I don't have fadas or dictionary to check spelling. Tantilising, but that's all she knew.
