Bhon Dualchas | Traditional

Tha an t-òran beòthail seo a' sealltainn gu bheil ceanglaichean làidir againn le Èirinn, Ameireagaidh agus dùthchannan eile.

This is a clapping song which was sung towards the end of the waulking (preparation) of the tweed by women around a long table. The Irish galley is descended from Viking longboats and has a sail with twelve oarsmen.


O cò bheir mi leam air an luing Èireannaich
O cò bheir mi leam

Dol a dh’America null air an luing Èireannaich
Tormod am bàrr a’ chroinn
Dòmhnall Iàin air an stiùir
Gille smioral ‘s am beil suim
‘S aithne dha àmhuilt an t-siùil
An ailm fo achlais an t-suinn
Leannan Màiri ‘n Aonghuis duinn
Leannan cruinneag a’ chinn chruim
Chan innis mi ainm idir dhuibh
Chi mi i caogadh a sùil
Théid sinn uile a-null

O who will take me on the Irish galley
O who will take me

Going across to America on the Irish ship
Tormod at top mast
Dòmhnall Iain steering
The powerful lad who has respect
He knows the way of the sail
The tiller under the oxter of the hero
Beloved Màiri of brown haired Aonghas
Beloved bonny lass of the fine features
I won't say the name to you
I see her winking her eye
We'll all go abroad
