There are a number of versions of the ever-popular air 'The Coolin'. Two versions may be heard on this track, performed by harper/singer Pádraigín Caesar and her sister Siobhán on whistle. An English translation of the poem, written in the Irish language in the seventeenth century by Maurice O'Dugan, may be found in the anthology 1000 Years of Irish Poetry.
