- An Gréasaí Bróg
- 24 February 2009
An Gréasai Bróg was first published in Treoir in 1982. It was subsequently included in the CCÉ publication Amhrán Rithmiúla, available in CD and accompanying booklet format from Cultúrlann na hÉireann. An Gréasai Bróg, a conversational rhythmical light-hearted song, has associations with Connemara and is in fact an old version of Beidh Aonach Amárach as was sung in West Clare. It features melodic and lyrical repetition, and thus simultaneously appeals to, and is easily learnt by, children. An Gréasai Bróg was included in the Spring 2009 edition of Treoir in response to requests received for such songs. The next issue of Treoir will feature another Irish language song offering more of a challenge to the learner.
