Mo Ghille Mear

First line:
'Sé mo laoch mo ghille mear
author of text

Written by the eighteenth-century poet Seán Clárach Mac Dómhnaill, Mo Ghille Mear is a traditional allegorical song—similar to the Gaelic poetic form of the Aisling—in which the poet laments the departure of Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie). As is customary, the poetic text portrays the land in decline in his absence. The drum used here is the Irish single-headed frame drum, the bodhrán.
