A young girl sings of her love, Paddy, and follows him into Ballinaboy and Clifden in County Galway. She secretly peeks into the windows to glance at Paddy's wife (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 Paddy, (and perhaps it would be ok if his current loved tripped and broke her leg) !

A traditional Irish, 'old style', sean Nós song. The version sung here is by Mike O'Laughlin at the Irish Roots Cafe. As recorded by in preparation for his upcoming 2nd album, scheduled for release December 2013. More on his web page at, also available at:
