Maimin Cajun Band, An Dreoilin

The Maimin Cajun Band from Conamara, fronted by Sean Monaghan sings An Dreoilin, accompanied by zany slides of Ireland... There are 2 other versions of this very popular song on TG4gaeilge, with Sean himself in the video (although the sound track is best on this version). The song concerns a wren, the king of all birds, and a frequent topic in Irish folklore. This wren has some troubles with a cat.
