Thread Name: Lyr Req: An Coolan
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: the Coolin
I think that must be a different song, as the Coolin/Cúilfhionn we've been talking of concerns a beautiful woman. We have, however, discussed the hairstyle as worn by men also. Please go to the Meaning of Coolin thread (you'll find a clickable link at my 13 April message above)and see an old Ir-Trad L message from the late Annraoi Ó Preith which I pasted in on Jan this year; he was looking for info on the very verse Firinne writes of. Yes, it would be interesting to see this poem. Is it a translation or originally written in English? Best to add it to that other thread. You don't need to put in the line breaks yourself anymore.
