Níl Sé Na Lá

Posted by shanoah on March 24, 2009

Oooh… So does your posting Asadoya Yunta mean that the theme is now folk songs in languages we can’t understand? I’m going to say yes, so todays post will be an ancient Gaelic drinking song named Níl Sé Na Lá.

It is being sung here by Mairead & Triona Ní Dhomhnaill.

And here is the same song being sung by Clannad. Amazing how different it sounds.
