    Anna agus Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh

    Is as Teileann i ndeisceart na condae a tháinig an tamhrán seo. Scéal faoi bhean as Teilann a phóa fear as na cnoic agus i brónach mar gheall go bhfuil sí ina cónaí ar shiúl ón fharraige. This is the story of a woman from the seaside village of Teileann who married a farmer and is not happy with her new way of life, living far from the sea.

    Ian Smith (le Stephen Campbell)

    This is one of Cavan's best known folk songs. It dates back to the 19th century and is a cautionary tale for any young man intending to seek his living as a farm labourer.
