Legend of Knockgrafton / "Monday, Tuesday" (Dia Luain, Dia Mairt)'Hara/Dia-Luain-Dia-Mairt-Lyrics.html translation of Mary O'Hara's song "Legend of Knockgrafton" based on W.B. Yeats' version Songs of Faery

Many versions of the story have been collected in Ireland and in Scotland, and often the story teller sings a chorus (Dia Luain, Dia Mairt...)(Monday, Tuesday: Dia Luain is the same as Dé Luain, etc). I have no idea how old the song is, but suspect that it is relatively recent and based on the older story.
