This song, the first verse and chorus of which I give below, is usually cited as having been translated from the Gaelic by A P Graves: my question is, does anyone know of a Gaelic original? I certainly don't, but I can't claim to have an exhaustive knowledge of Irish language songs, perhaps one of the experts who post here might know.
With swelling sail, away, away!
Our bark goes bounding o'er the bay!
Farewell, farewell, old Arranmore!
She courtseys, courtseys to the shore.
Chorus: Farewell, fond wives and children dear!
From ev'ry ill heav'n keep you clear;
Till through the surge we stagger back,
As full of fish as we can pack.
