In the documentary about Eithne's life,  'Idir Dhá Shaol’ , this song announces the story's final stages, the descent towards its conclusion.  I can't hear it since without feeling that sense of foreboding and sadness.


Hi Peter, I haven't seen this documentary. Do you have a link to it?

There are trailers online, but not the whole thing, as far as I can see:



I did download it at the time, the file is 250-ish Megabyte, as far as I remember.  Hmm, let me think about that for a minute..
