Oran Ghabhsuinn (audio)

A man's love song. Again the bard promises the young lady everything in the way of happiness and possession if she will come to live with him in Galson.

It is a public poem, and Gaelic song was often used as a method of ensuring that the other young men would stay away. Despite building a house in Galson, however, the young lady did not take a blind bit of notice of our bard, and he himself never went to live in him Galson house, following his disapointment.
