Moya Brennan (Máire Ní Bhraonáin) - Méilte Cheann Dubhrann

Lyrics:

A Mhéilte Cheann Dubhrann
Is sibh a thógfadh dom cian
Tráthnóna sa tsamhradh
Nuair a luíos an ghrian
Nach aoibhinn do do chladaigh
D'oiche is de ló
Is a Mhéilte Cheann Dubhrann
Céad slan libh go deo

Nach sna méilte udaí a chaith mé
Seal aoibhinn gan ghruaim
Ag buachailleacht eallaigh
Fá imeall an chuain
Is ann abogadh mo chliabhán
Nuair a bhí mé beag óg
Is a Mhéilte Cheann Dubhrann
Céad slan libh go deo

Tá néaltaí na maidne
Ag breacadh sa spéir
Tá na coiligh ag scairtigh
Le bánú an lae
Tá an soitheach ag fanacht
In imeall an cheo
Is a Mhéilte Cheann Dubhrann
Céad slan libh go deo

Nach trua mise amárach
Ag dul idir dhá dtír
Agus sléibhte na coigríche
Ag cur cumha ar mo chroí
Beidh mo rosca mar shruthán
Ag síorshileadh deor
Is a Mhéilte Cheann Dubhrann
Céad slan libh go deo

English translation:

Sandy hills of Ceann Dubhrann
It's you rise in my heart
On a fine summer's evening
As the sun departs
How pleasant your strands
By night and by day
But sand hills of Ceann Dubhrann
I must bid you farewell

'Twas in those bright hills
I walked happy and free
Herding white geese
Near the rim of the sea
There I was rocked the cradle
While I was a child
But sand hills of Ceann Dubhrann
I bid you good-bye

Fair clouds of the morning
Now light up the sky
The cocks, they crow loud
With the white dawn of day
In the mist a ship waits
Away out on the tide
Sandy hills of Ceann Dubhrann
I bid you good-bye

Far out on the deep sea
Tomorrow I'll be
'Neath the high hills of exile
My heart will soon grieve
And down my two cheeks
The salt tears will fall
Sandy hills of Ceann Dubhrann
I bid you farewell
