Subject: RE: Lyr Req: An Coolan
I used to have a recording of 'An Chúileann' (The Fair-haired Maiden) sung in Irish by Seán Ó Sé (Sean O'Shea), an associate of the late Seán Ó Riada. It started off 'An bhfaca tú an chúileann,' (Have you seen the fair maiden). Unfortunately I have mislaid it. Maybe this info would enable someone to track down the lyrics in full. BTW, the above is how it is spelled in my 'Gearrfhoclóir Gaeilge-Béarla' (Shorter Irish-English Dictionary).
