"This is an adaptation of 'Higglety-pigglety My Black Hen' into Irish." –Franc Bell


"In the Munster dialect, the word for today – inniu – rhymes with the word for black - dubh (a bit like the English word dove) and it used to be written with a bh (v sound) at the end of it. Usually in Irish the verb comes first."
