crnn na fairrige ag dul siar ar mo chluasa
bog-cheol an uisce ag sileadh san abhainn.
istigh ar na h-insein t sean-reilig bheannaithe

english translation from jason carns
down by the beach, in the deep of night
the big world is sleeping and i am alone
the sea-birds are calling sorrowfully
like poor souls in pain
total purity and total abundance (?)bliss and calmness and beauty in the world
the murmur of the sea going into my ears
the soft song of the water flowing in the river.
above on the headland* there is a blessed old cemetery
the place in which saints lived in times long ago
there are people within spending a while carefree
the will not walk round on the sh*r* any more.
loneliness strikes my spirits as i look at the cemetery
and i’m thinking about the people in there sleeping
men and young women, old people and children
people of my people and friends of my heart.
the c*cks are crowing and the stars are fading
the moon is setting and it’s not lon
