    Looking forward to learning the songs with Bite Size Irish.
    I have been learning one song at the Online Irish Music Academy: “Deoindí ó deighdil dum My love is so nice,
    Deoindí ó deighdil dum and I can’t give her up
    Is deoindí ó dí ó deighdil dum.
    Deoindí ó deighdil dum and my love is as proper,
    Deoindí ó deighdil dum as a glass in an ale-house,
    Is deoindí ó dí ó deighdil dum.
    Deoindí ó deighdil dum ‘s aren’t nettles and yellow flowers
    Deoindí ó deighdil dum growing in the place my house used to be
    Is deoindí ó dí ó deighdil dum.

    Deoindí ó deighdil dum uour foot is love of my heart
    Deoindí ó deighdil dum is and it dancing to the tune
    Is deoindí ó dí ó deighdil dum.

    Deoindí ó deighdil dum love of my heart is the one
    Deoindí ó deighdil dum I haven’t seen since yesterday
    Is deoindí ó dí ó deighdil dum.
    Deoindí ó deighdil dum it’s many twist and turn
    Deoindí ó deighdil dum in your heart that I haven’t uncovered
    Is deoindí ó dí ó deighdil dum.

    Deoindí ó deighdil dum and my love is as heavy
    Deoindí ó deighdil dum as a stone you’d throw in a ditch
    Is deoindí ó dí ó deighdil dum.

    Deoindí ó deighdil dum and my love told me
    Deoindí ó deighdil dum not to heed the liars
    Is deoindí ó dí ó deighdil dum

      Its funny that i sought out an Irish music academy online to learn the Bodhran and Tin whistle. Then months later i came across an Irish language course online at FutureLearn and later Bite Size Irish … then like i said elsewhere on your site; i found out after telling my parents what i have been doing, that i am an Irish descendent … greatgrandparents on both sides of my family. I was obviously attracted to the Irish music and language for a reason
