Ceol

Ceol

Éiríonn borradh ceoil
Aníos idir do dhá láimh,
Ceolchaire corda is gutha
I gcaisí is srutha
Ag baint macalla as an Chearnóg,
Go nascann siad le sean-cheol
I scabhait is lánaí an bhaile.

Music (Translation)

The music crescendos
Between your hands,
Harmony of chord and voice
Echoing in rills and runs
Through the Square,
Joins an old music
In the little alleys
And lanes of the town.
