I would like to get the words to " Thios Chois Tra Domh" by Clannad, the English transalation would be welcome as well. It is a beautiful melody.
With the help of a dictionary and the little Irish I have I may be able to translate it but if I get it from the thread it will save me the trouble and will probably be more accurate.

Many thanks

THIOS COIS NA TRÁ DOMH

Thíos cois na trá domh, i ndoimhneacht na h-oíche
An saol mór ina gcodladh, 's mise liom féin
Na h-éanacha mara ag scairtigh go léanmhar
Cosúil le h-anamnacha bochta i bpéin

Iomlán gealaí 's iomlán rabharta
Aoibhneas 's ciúnas,'s áilleacht sa domhan
Crónán na farraige ag dul siar ar mo chluasa
Bog-cheol an uisce ag sileadh san abhainn

Istigh ar na h-inseáin tá sean-reilig bheannaithe
An áit a mhair naoimh san aimsir fadó
Tá daoine istigh ann ag chaith seal go h-aerach
Ní shiúlfaidh siad thart fán chladach níos mó

Bhuail uaigneas m'intinn 's mé ag amharc ar an reilig
'S mé ag meabhrú ar dhaoine istigh ann ina luí
Fir a's mná óga, seandaoine 's páistí
Muintir mo mhuintire 's cairde mo chroí

Tá na coiligh ag glaoch 's na réaltaí ag bánú
Tá an ghealach ina luí 's ní fada go lá
Slán agat anois, a shean-reilig bheannaithe
'S na daoine a shiúlfadh liom síos cois na trá

=====
The standard spelling of "domh" is "dom", but "domh" better represents the Donegal pronunciation of this prepositional pronoun.
"Éanacha" is the local plural of "éan", bird; the standard dictionary plural is "ein"
------
Down by the beach, in the deep of night
The big world is sleeping, and I'm on my own
The sea-birds are calling sorrowfully
Like poor souls in pain


There is a cemetary (reilg) near the shore, so the singer is aware of the people who walked there before
