about

19th century, Scottish.

Fhear (Fhir or Fear) a' Bhàta (translatedThe boatman) is a Scots Gaelic song from the late 19th century, written by Sìne NicFhionnlaigh (Jean Finlayson) of who was courting a young fisherman from Uig, Dòmhnall MacRath. The song captures the emotions that she endured during their courtship. The part of the story that is rarely told is that they were married not long after she composed the song.
