An Ciarraíoch Mallaithe (The Cursed Kerryman)

Seamus Begley and Jim Murray perform this beautiful old love song on an episode of Geantraí. The English translation is included as subtitles in the video.

Má leanaim go dian tú siar chun Cairibreach
Caillfead mo chiall mura driallfair abhaile liom,
óró, bead ag sileadh na ndeor.
Ná tar im dheoidh gan mórchuid airgid,
stampa Rí Shacsain go cruinn i dtaisce agat,
óró, i gcomhair costais an róid.
Ní bheidh cloig ar ár ndornaibh ó rómhar na ngarraithe
ná ó chruachadh na móna ná an fómhair á leathadh orainn,
beidh rince fada againn más é is fearra leat,
ór agus airgead, ól agus beathuisce,
óró, fad a mhairfimid beo.
