Does anyone know the words of Queen Of County Clare Bell/Gourlay, as recorded by the late, great Patrick O'Hagan.
I kinow most of it but there are some words i cannot understand and I'd love to be able to sing it properly.
The first verse is
In the hush(blush?) of early morn, when the heavens(heather) is born,
And the sun is slanting off the hills of Clare.
Down the lovely Shannon's side a bewitching girl I spied,
With the crown of Derry Flowers in her hair.
