GHAOTH ANES, AN. AKA and see "Southwind," "I have a secret to tell thee." Irish, Air (3/4 time). Ireland, Clare. The air is attributed by Bunting (who prints it under the title "I have a Secret to Tell Thee") to Clare musician Donall Meidhreach Mac Conmara. Hamish Henderson (1971) remarks that the tune is reminiscent of Sean O' Tuama's drinking song "Is Duine Me Chiolas Leann La", which he says is sometimes described as the first setting of the 'Limerick' verse-form.
