For those of you who have struggled to find this song's origins, I found this video of the group "Capercaillie" performing it.

Pretty awesome. I hope to hear an official version from Méav at some point. I think I may have read it would be recorded for her new show Divinas, but I'm not sure. I hope so.

Here's this video to the performance. It's actual title is "Alasdair Mhic Cholla Ghasda"

The group Clannad performed it too.  It's a very neat song.  It was on the setlist for Divinas, so hopefully we'll hear it before too horribly long. Smiley

Awesome. Thanks for the information. I remember listening to the little clip of the NY concert and hoping it would be recorded.
