Brian boru

 

(Irish Gaelic)

Maraíodh Brian Boru chun beatha na hÉireann
Síochain in gCuige Uladh agus i mBaile ‘Cliath
Aontacht an teaghlaigh, aontacht na dtuath
Aontacht an domhain is na gCeilteach
Diouzh nerzh ar c’hadou da nerzh an ehan
Diouzh ‘bed doueek bennozh ar c’haroud
O neart an chatha go neart na síochana
On bhith dhiaga beannacht an ghrá
Duirt siad gurbh é seo sochraide ar muintire
Gur choir duine bheinn sollunta féin
Bíodh nach raibh brónach
Marv Brian Boru ‘reiñ buhez ‘n Iwerzhon
Dihan e Bro-Ulad ha ba kêr Dulenn
Unded an tiegezh, unded an dud-mañ
Unded ar Gelted hag an douar
Maraíodh Brian Boru chun beatha na hÉireann
Síochain in gCuige Uladh agus i mBaile ‘Cliath
Aontacht an teaghlaigh, aontacht na dtuath
Aontacht an domhain is na gCeilteach
Diouzh nerzh ar c’hadou da nerzh an ehan
Diouzh ‘bed doueek bennozh ar c’haroud
O neart an chatha go neart na síochana
On bhith dhiaga beannacht an ghrá
Tá muid ‘nos na haimsire
Go h-airid an ghrían
Agus thogh muid áit bhóg cois abhann
(A bit repetitive)
Brian Boru will die for the life of Ireland
Peace in the province of Ulster and in Dublin
Family unity, tribal unity
Unity in the world of the Celts
From so much battle to so much peace
From a world of divine blessings, love
From so much battle to so much peace
From a world of divine blessings, love
They said that this was a (funeral) procession
That people would be solemn
But we were not sorrowful
Brian Boru will die for the life of Ireland
Peace in the province of Ulster and in Dublin
Family unity, tribal unity
Unity in the world of the Celts
Brian Boru will die for the life of Ireland
Peace in the province of Ulster and in Dublin
Family unity, tribal unity
Unity in the world of the Celts
From so much battle to so much peace
From a world of divine blessings, love
From so much battle to so much peace
From a world of divine blessings, love
We are like the weather
Especially the sun
And we chose a soft place by the river

— translated by: Alan Stivell (I think)

They said that this was a funeral of our people

That a gentle mountain should be saddened
Have not been sad

From the strength of the battle to the strength of the psalm Be the divine blessing of love

From the strength of the battle to the strength of the psalm Be the divine blessing of love

We’re all over time

Going on the back
And we chose a diving area along the river
— Google’s ever so helpful translation.
Oh and, then there’s this
