GUEST,Neil Comer Help: Irish Keening-Caoineadh- Help? (19) RE: Help: Irish Keening-Caoineadh- Help? 29 Jun 02


One of the most famous "Caoineadh" is "Caoineadh Airt U Laoghaire." Art Laoghaire was an Irish Catholic who refused to sell his horse to an English nobleman. At the time, an English nobleman in Ireland could insist on spending no more than 5 on his chosed horse, no matter who the owner. Art Laoghaire was killed over this refusal and his wife's lament has been recorded. There's little point in me writing it here, but I will try to post a link!
