about

A popular song emanating from 18th-century Ireland, which Séamus learned while at school from influential teacher Caoimhín Ó Cinnéide. The melody is similar to that found in ‘The Girl I Left Behind M’”, a popular folk song and military march in the United States. The term ‘spailpín’ refers to a labourer hired for a job of temporary duration, such as potato digging.
