Birlinn Ghorree Chrovan

This is a popular song on the Island that tells the story of King Orry’s journey to the Isle of Man from the Western Isles. The words have been set to an adaptation of a Hebridean tune, although I’m not sure of the name of it…. Anyone recognise it?

This is Birlinn Ghoraidh Chrobhain , it’s just spelt differently in Gaelic. I believe the song was composed fairly recently.
