"Éirigh Suas A Stóirín" ("Rise Up, My Darling") tells the story of a young man who goes to bargain with the parents of a girl he loves for her hand, as was the custom in the poorer parts of Ireland. He is refused, and the remainder of the song tells of his sorrow at this loss.' I find it heartbreakingly sad...and the Gaelic lilt reminds me just a little of the voices of my Scandinavian elders of long ago...

I personally much prefer the way Clannad did it in their early career, but this rendition is good too.
