Irish Songs for Funerals

Irish Songs for Funerals

I was just wondering if anyone had good amhrántí i ngaoluinn for a funeral?

Around my parts, Gile Mear is THE song for the end and others include Seán Ó Duibhir a‘Ghleanna, Eamon a’Chnoic, Caoineadh Na dTrí Muire, Amhrán Na Páise, all of the usual Ó Riada stuff and things like that.

Thanks!

Caoineadh Uí Néill is a favorite of mine.

I apologize for not having read your inquiry correctly, and submitted a tune with words sung in English.

It is a tune that a mandolin player in our session from Nova Scotia selects quite often to be played and she always sings the last verse for us.
