Names followed by a ‘v’
When your name is followed by a ‘v’, that
indicates the county volume number(s) that your
name is found in. (v2 = volume 2 and so on).
Each volume covers a different Irish County,
and that can be helpful in itself, when searching
your Irish roots. There are 34 volumes to date.
If there is no ‘v’
If there is no ‘v’ after the name, then it means
your name is found in ‘The Book of Irish Families'
great & small’ on the page number given.
I wanna be Paddys Girl... aka Bean Pháidín (gaeilge)
A jealous woman sings of stalking her love, Paddy, into Ballinaboy and Clifden in County Galway. She secretly peeks into the windows hoping to get a glance of Paddy's wife (for it is her bitter sorrow, that she is not the wife of Paddy ! ) At the Irish Roots Cafe we refer to this song as " I wanna be Paddy's Girl ' ! .
She deserves to be the one to come back in the boat with Paddy, and she's worn out the soles and heels of her shoes, in the stalking of him !
A traditional Irish, 'old style', sean Nós song. Early version sung here by Mike O'Laughlin at the Irish Roots Cafe. As recorded by Irishroots.com in preparation for his upcoming 2nd album, scheduled for release December 2013.
