This song, in Irish, tells of a traveller with a nice yellow apple a lovely young woman has given him. He put it into his pocket on his journey home. Almost magically, when he takes it out of his pocket, it has turned into a seed potato. This of course, could be code for many a thing.....
He sadly passes by Clare Island; the bays of Beara Island; Cobh and Ballynamona, and the parish of Eyeries..... finally, in the chorus, someone on the east coast told him he was the laughing stock of Néidin !
Recorded at the Irish Roots Cafe in Kansas City. As sung and arranged by Michael C. O'Laughlin. This version is from the album: Irish Song: Traditional & Sean Nós. (See lyrics and commentary at the www.Irishroots.com blog)
