AmyLove Gaelic trans.: Eamonn an Chnoic/Chniuic (50) RE: Gaelic trans.: Eamonn an Chnoic/Chniuic 12 Feb 17


I think the Irish lyrics at the page I linked to above come closer to the version sung by Fionnuala MacLochlainn on Amhráin Ghrá. However there were a few instances in which I switched in some words from the "posted by Rich Meme, but originally in Dónal Óg thread" lyrics from "GUEST" above. I have no idea if the final result below makes grammatical sense in Irish. If anyone has any corrections, please feel free to share.

You can listen to MacLochlainn's version here:

Éamonn an Chnoic


"Cé hé sin amu
a bhfuil faobhar a ghuth,
a' réabadh mo dhorais dhúnta?"
"Mise Éamonn a' Chnoic,
atá báite fuar fliuch,
ó shíor-shiúl sléibhte is gleannta."

"A lao ghil 's a chuid,
cad a dheánfainn-se dhuit
mura gcuirfinn ort binn de mo ghúna?
'S go mbeidh púdar dubh
á shiorshéadadh leat,
's go mbéimish araon múchta!"

"Is fada mise amu
faoi shneachta is faoi shioc,
's gan dánacht agam ar éinne.
Mo sheisreach gan scor,
mo bhranar gan cur,
Agus gan iad agam ar aon chor!

Níl cáirde agam—
is danaid liom san—
a ghlacfadh mé moch ná déanach.
'S go gcaithfe mé dul
thar fairraige soir,
ó's ann nach bhfuil mo ghaolta."
