Yet another simple poem set to music by MaryO'Hara. It pays homage to the traditional Irish fishing boat , the Currach.


A currach (Irish: curach, Irish pronunciation: [ˈkʊɾˠax]) is a type of Irish boat with a wooden frame, over which animal skins or hides were once stretched, though now canvas is more usual. ..

Lyrics

óró mo bháidín


Mary O'Hara
Crochfaidh mé seolta is rachaidh mé siar
Óró mo churaichín ó!
'S go hOíche Fhéil' Eoin ní thiocfaidh mé aniar

Óró mo bháidín!
Óró mo churaichín ó!
Óró mo bháidín
Óró mo churaichín ó!
Óró mo bháidín!

Nach breá í mo bháidín ag snámh ar a' gcuan
Óró mo churaichín ó
'S na céaslaí á dtarraingt go láidir 's go buan
Óró mo bháidín

Óró mo churaichín ó!
Óró mo bháidín,
Óró mo churaichín ó!
Óró mo bháidín!

Nach lúfar í ag iomramh soir agus siar
Óró mo churaichín ó
'S a sárú ní bhfaighidh tú ó Árainn go Cliar
Óró mo bháidín

Óró mo churaichín ó!
Óró mo bháidín
Óró mo churaichín ó!
Óró mo bháidín!


We will raise our sails
And head to the west
We will not return
Until st Eoins day

Oh My sweet little currach,
Oh my sweet litte boat
Oh my sweet little currach
Oh my sweet little boat

How beautiful is my little boat
Gliding on the bay
And the oars pulling
Strong and true


How agile it moves
From east to west
Without trouble
From Aran to Clare
