Don't wrestle with a pig. The pig enjoys it and you get muddy.

Default In honor of St Patrick's Day


Cearbhall Mor O"Daly fell in love with Eibhlin Kavanagh. Despite the fact he was the son and the brother of a chieftan and a highly ranked scholar in his own right, her family didn't like him. When he was away they told Eibhlin he had been unfaithful and was not coming back. She agreed to marry another. On the eve of Eibhlin's wedding Cearbhall returned, grabbed up his harp and sat beneath her window singing.
She heard him. She sent him a token. Later that night, they ran off together...

The song has been anglicized as Aileen Aroon. There are many, many versions.
