B'fhéidir go mbeadh eolas ag duine éigin i dtaobh an fhoinn chailiúil, ar a dtugtar "Green Linnet". Tá comlacht taifeada ann darb an t-ainm céanna, is dóigh, agus ta suim agam sa teideal; cad í a fhoinse? Cad is ea an "Green Linnet"? An leasainm é ar dhuine nó ar rud?

Rinne mé google tapaidh. Tá dán den teideal sin ag Wordsworth, ach níl fhios agam an bhfuil aon bhaint aige sin leis an bport.

THE GREEN LINNET
Curiosity led a young native of Erin,
To view the gay banks of the Rhine,
Where an Empress he saw and the gold that she was wearing
All over with diamonds did shine.
No goddess in splendour was ever yet seen,
To equal this fair maid so mild and serene,
In soft accents she cried, O my linnet so green,
Sweet Boney, will I e'er see you more?

Tá freagra ar do cheist agam, agus caithfidh mé an glas a bhaint de mo bhéal chun é a thabhairt duit. (Táim i mo lurker anseo le fada.)
Chuir mé m'ainm i raifil ag ceolchoirm cúpla bliain ó shin agus bhuaigh mé duais -- CD ó chomhlacht taifeadta Green Linnet.
Seo sliocht ón nótaí:
" 'The green linnet, or green finch -- in Irish Gealbhan Glas -- is a very highly respected outdoor bird, particularly well-thought of in Ireland. It is possessed of a truly fine singing voice, but frequents the lower class fields, heaths, and hedgerows, feeding on "lint crops" such as hemp and flaxseed.' (A Field Book of Wild Birds and their Music F. Schuyler Matthews, 1904)
Because his wars against Britain were thought to imply sympathy for the cause of Irish freedom, the use of Napoleon's name was forbidden in Ireland, and so he was lovingly know as 'The Green Linnet'."

Níl mé cinnte go bhfuil éan ceoil beo ann a dtugtar "green linnet" air i ndáiríre.
