Beanacht R na hAoine

Beir bheannacht R na hAoine ar an oileinn ina bhfuilim ann
Mar go bh'fhearr liom l is oche ann n bliain ar an mbaile d thall
Is ann do bhodh an rl againn, ceol pob is leann ar chlr
Is sln ag an gcorn bhu d, a bhodh lionadh de'n mbranda ab fhearr

iridh mise amrach gan spleachas le cnamh D
N fhanfaidh m san it seo go brch, brch ar feadh mo shaol
Mar is do chmhr tlth lag, do chrig is do mharaibh m
Is, a Dhia, nach olc an bhis at in ann dom m scarfaim li

Is ar choinnleach glas an fhmhair bhu, a stirn, 'sea do dhearcas t
Ba dheas do chois i mbrign, is ba r-dheas do leagan siil
Do ghruaig ar dhath an ir-bhu, na crda go fite id' lb
Is nach trua nach lndin phsta sinn, ar bhord loinge ag dull anonn

Is thos ar ch Phort Lirge, t an t-rthach um bhrath le comhair
Chun m do bhreith thar sile, is go brch, brch n chasfaidh m
Beidh mo mhuintir is mo chairde, go csfar ag gol im' dhiadh
Is anois raghainn thar sile, cad sln leis an Bhlascaoid Mr

Peter has probably found all that. Sorry, I can't help with sheet music unless some other mudcatter can transcribe from mp3

Thanks Guest Phillipa for the info, but still looking for dots or ABC - all my usual places have drawn a blank

Well, Peter, I see that you still have your hopes up. I work out MIDI's to tunes rather often, so let me explain something. That song would be a nightmare to write down. It alternates long, drawn-out notes with mad ornaments involving idiosyncratic timing.

The hardest part of noting a song is getting the timing.   When the timing involves things like dots, 32nd notes, triplets, fourthlets and fifthlets -- well, 'that way madness lies.'

Perhaps someone else can notate the song, but I'm afraid it's unlikely.
