If you indeed want the song with the words "ólaim puins is ólaim tae, an lá ina dhiadh sin ólaim toddy," I'll be able to post them but I can't say they'll be the same as sung by Danú.

Áine, don't you have a copy of "Abair Amhráin"

Didn't the Dubliners record "Ólaim Puins"??

Declan, I don't know if there's a usual tune to "Níl 'na lá", as there are at least 4 tunes fairly commonly used for it. I can't say I recall that song being sung to the usual tune for Ólaim Puins. for anyone interested in "Níl 'na lá", there are a few relevant threads on Mudcat, including a few versions in Irish and the Eng. language "There's the day"
