Thread Name: Meaning of 'The Coolin'
Subject: RE: Meaning of 'The Coolin'
Ard Mhacha, don't take that 'translated from the Irish' on Samuel Ferguson's songs too seriously. Where the original Gaelic can be found the songs are much different from Ferguson's. His "Coolun" is on the internet, as is his "Fair Hills of Ireland". Compare the latter with the earlier Gaelic one in Donal O'Sullivan's 'Songs of the Irish'. His "Drimion Dubh Deelish" is quite different from that also given by O'Sullivan.
