Cliff Mcgann Tune Add: Oro! Se Do Bheatha Bhaile (20) RE: Oro! Se Do Bheatha Bhaile 27 Jul 97

Here is a translation from a recording by the late great Joe Heaney (Seosamh O/ hE/anai/) entitled Joe Heaney in the Pacific Northwest which was recorded mostly while he was an artist in residence at the university of Washington in the late 70's.

CHORUS: Oro, you are welcome home! Oro, you are welcome home!
Oro, you are welcome home! Now that summer is coming.

Welcome, o woman who was so afflicted, it was our ruin that you were in bondage.
Our fine land in the possession of thieves, sold to the foreigners.
Please the great God that we may see, although we only live a week after it,
Grainne Mhaol and a thousand warriors, dispersing the foreigners.
Grainne Mhaol is coming over the sea, armed warriors along with her as guard.
They are Irish themselves, not foreigners, nor Spaniards, and they will beat the foreigners.
