There are several translations (haven't looked at Digitrad's) but I think Donal O'Sullivan's is the nicest. He's the one who wrote the big biog of the harper Carolan. Here are the words:

O SOUTH WIND

Translated by Donal O'Sullivan

[The poet sings to the south wind]
O South Wind of the gentle rain
You banish winter weather
Bring salmon to the pool again
The bees among the heather
If northward now you mean to blow
As you rustle soft above me
Godspeed be with you as you go
With a kiss for those who love me

[The wind replies]
From south I come with velvet breeze
My work all nature blesses
I melt the snow and strew the leas
With flowers and soft caresses
I'll help you to dispel your woe
With joy I'll take your greeting
And bear it to your loved Mayo
Upon my wings so fleeting

[The poet sings]
My Connaught famed for wine and play
So leal, so gay, so loving
Here's a fond kiss I send today
Borne by the wind in his roving
These Munster folk are good and kind
Right royally they treat me
But this land I'd gladly leave behind
With your Connaught pipes to greet me
