Appears on Altan’s first self-titled album, between Con Cassidy’s Highland and Neilly O’Boyle’s Reel.

i really like this tune. meant to enter it in with the reel under the recording but i’m lazy. will try and change it now.

Mary Bergin plays this as a reel in G mixo called "A Stór, a Stór, a Ghrá".

& another that works also as a Highland Fling…

Re: Neilly O’Boyle’s Highland

On the recording I have, Boyle himself actually plays this in G. I think I like it better in G anyhow.

Stór, A Stór, A Ghrá

Bhí mé lá breá samhraidh
I mo sheasamh ar an mhargadh
‘S is iomaí fear a dúirt liom
"Monuar, gan tú sa bhaile agam"
A stór, a stór, a ghrá
A stór, a stór, an dtiocfaidh tú?
A stór, a stór, a ghrá
An dtiocfaidh tú nó an bhfanfaidh tú?
Gheall mo ghrá domsa
Cinnte go dtiocfadh sí
Ní raibh a culaith déanta
Agus sin an rud a choinnigh í
A stór, a stór, a ghrá
A stór, a stór, an dtiocfaidh tú?
A stór, a stór, a ghrá
An dtiocfaidh tú nó an bhfanfaidh tú?
Tá an t-uisce ag teacht ón Éirne
Tá utha na mba á réabadh ar mhéid
Is ‘tá de bhainne acu
A stór, a stór, a ghrá
A stór, a stór, an dtiocfaidh tú?
A stór, a stór, a ghrá
An dtiocfaidh tú nó an bhfanfaidh tú?
Thart tóin an gharraí, a Mháire
Bhfuil an fhidil leat?
Aicearra na bprátaí go dtéimid
‘Sair an fhidileoir
A stór, a stór, a ghrá
A stór, a stór, an dtiocfaidh tú?
A stór, a stór, a ghrá
An dtiocfaidh tú nó an bhfanfaidh tú?
Bhí mise lán den tsaol
Is bhí cion amuigh is istigh orm
Nach mór a d’athraigh an saol
Nuair nach bhfuil cion ag duine ar bith orm?
