Well thank you! I've always wondered what Dulaman was about!

Hmmm... apparently it means... SEAWEED?! Lol!

Of a new and brighter day
If we work to make them come true
We will surely find a way

Thanks, Billy!
Man, I love that site!
Not that I really understand a word of the lyrics...
Oh! Except I know "agus" is "and," and "trus" is "trousers."
And I can recognize a few other Gaelic words....
Buuuut not even enough to carry on small talk  Grin

The song is mostly symbolic, like a lot of Irish songs.

But it also has a bit of history associated with it.

During the potato famine, more than a million Irish people starved to death.

All the good crops were shipped to England, and there was very little for the people to eat for survival.
Those who lived near the sea and rivers were the most likely to survive, thanks to fish and .......yes, SEAWEED.

It was discovered that a certain type of seaweed was very nutritious.
Another type was good for dying linen shades of green.
One was for survival, the other could be sold and used for fashion.

This is the comparison in the song, between the two suitors.

Personal note: The house where my ancestors lived during the Famine (still there) has a trout stream running through the land at the back. It comes straight down from the mountains.
That's how my family survived. Thanks be to God.

You never get tired of trout when your life depends on it! Cheesy

Oh, really? So the Gaelic word of this song means the English meaning as well as I've read it?

There's nothing we can do. Sad Geocities shut down about a year or two ago, taking all the sites hosted by them with it! There was even an preservation project going on, but as soon as Geocities heard, they pulled the plug even sooner. Cry
