Dúlamán, Traditional Irish, by Michael McGlynn

Dúlamán – (Irish for “channelled wrack”, a type of edible seaweed) – Due to erosion of the land, people were forced to carry seaweed from the shorelines along the barren West Coast of Ireland; this was then allowed to rot, and was eventually used to plant potatoes in. The text of this song, an extract from a much longer traditional text, details the discussion between “dúlamán Gaelach” (a collector of seaweed for dyeing clothes) and “dúlamán maorach” (a collector of seaweed to be cooked and eaten). The latter wishes to marry the daughter of the former, and makes various arguments and entreaties for this purpose, finally declaring that he will simply take her away.
