An Buachaill Dreoite (fling)

.

'Dreoite' means something like 'spent', 'wasted' or 'withered', so the title translates as something like 'The Withered Boy' (suggesting someone suffering from a serious malady) or 'The Spent Lad' (suggesting other things maybe...)

This is one of the ones Willie Clancy got from the old piper Garrett Barry via his father, Gilbert.

It's a nice one to try and bring out some the various grades of f-supernatural-off-the-knee although I'm certainly not as fearless and as expressive as Prof. Clancy in that department.

Regards,

Harry.
