An Poc ar Buile - The Mad Puck Goat - Tune

I have been listening to Cherish the Ladies “The Girls won’t Leave the Boys Alone” and have learnt by ear the tune thats played in the middle and as an outro to this track. Can any body confirm the name of this tune. Is it called “The Mad Puck Goat” or does it have another name.

The Angry Billy-Goat. (as opposed to a nanny-goat)

Re: An Poc ar Buile - The Mad Puck Goat - Tune

A great song at any session as the chorus is so easy to learn (Hill a loo, hal a loo, hill a loo an Poc ar Buile, etc). Cork man, Sean Barrett (90 years young!) sings this frequently at the Monkstown Wednesday session and is normally joined by all present in the rousing chorus. I think it was Seán Ó Sé that introduced the song originally back in the sixties with Ó Riada’s Ceoltóirí Chualann.

A great song! can anyone point me to an on-line recording of it?

An Poc ar Buile - The Mad Puck Goat - Tune

macfion -This thread has been moved from Discussions to Recordings - I hope you find it OK.

I don’t know where there is a “Cherish the Ladies” version of this tune but while googling on “An Poc ar Buile” recently I found:-

There is a MP3 after the lyrics. I haven’t heard it yet cause I’m at work but will be downloading it at the weekend. It is my intention to learn to sing it in Gaelic, which is a big ask cause I am not a gaelic speaker. is also a usefull link

I might just be able to do it well by the time I reach 90 years. I wish I was nearer to the Monkstown to see how it should be done.



Track 9

Updated, but “The Collier’s” is linking to the “Collier’s” jig, but they play “The Collier’s Reel”.
