Cúchulainn and Orange Sam

I'm not sure that I am posting on the right site as this isn't 'classical' poetry - rather a rhyming recitation or monologue. About 20 years ago, an acquaintance (of the time) taped a monologue for me on the ancient Irish version of the Northern Ireland Troubles of the time. Stupidly, I mislaid the tape. Does anyone know of this? Many thanks

Bairbre, the story you seek may be contained here:

There are also songs based on the classic Irish story.

Apologies - I didn't make myself clear - it was a comic poem about the Troubles of the 1970s, using the names of the ancient Táin heroes etc. It was therefore a modern (1980s) composition.

Bairbre, can you remember any of the lines?

Not one ... though I now have the feeling that the main character might have actually been Sam Cúchulainn. I remember the gist of it but cannot, for the life of me, put a line together
