Hey,
   I'm new here, but does anyone know where I can find a recording of the _Gaelic_ version of Roddy McCorley, either in .mp3 or on CD? I've found plenty of the English version.

A thousand thankyous,
JimmySeal

Not sure there IS a recording of it in the Gaelic. From the looks of the PREVIOUS thread, it almost looks like they translated it for the Mudcat Thread listed below:

I've never heard of an Irish language version, though I suppose someone may have made a translation and recorded it. Good luck in your search.

The translation wasn't done for the Mudcat thread but appeared in at least one song book of Gaelic songs I had growing up. But I think its fair to say its a translation to the Gaelic rather than an original. I'm not aware of any recordings.

I was born in Toome and have to say I have never heard of Rodi Mac Corlai in my life.

I've never come across a Gaelic version of the song either. I assume that the enquirer is asking about the song by Ethna Carbery, not the older ballad of '98 that inspired it? I've never heard a Gaelic version of that one either! Carbery's song was certainly written in English, published in 1902.

Bobby Sands wrote a long poem about McCorley, in English, but he did use the Gaelic form of his name.
