Eibhlin Aruin...(Eileen my treasure/darling Eileen)...Beautiful love song (one of the oldest)composed by a famous minstral Irish harper, Carrol O'Daly ...thought to have been composed in 1386. Described by old annilists as the 'chief composer of Ireland. The story goes that O'Daly was in love with Eileen - daughter of an Irish chieftan by the name of Kavanagh. She was being forced into a loveless marriage by her father so O'Daly disguised himself as in itinerent harper and arrived at the eve of her betrothol and sang this song to her. She eloped with him!. This is one of the most beautiful Gaelic songs ever composed.
