http://www.irishroots.com/podcast3/irishsong33.mp3

Let’s listen in to todays impromptu performance.
( You’ll have to go to the podcast for that ! )

Lyrics (one of several variations):

Ar Bhruacha Na Laoi

Nach brónach a bhí mise nuair a d’fhága mé an baile
Agus dúirt mé slán leatsa a dhíl Éirinn mo ghrá
Gidh gur fhéach mé bheith súgrach, á, ba deorach mo shúile
‘S mé a’ scaradh óna chéile úd nach bhfeicfead go brách

Ag scaradh go brách, brách le cnoic agus gleannta
Agus cathair dheas Chorcaí nach bhfeicfead arís
Ag scaradh go deo, deo leis na cairde ba dhílse
Ó dhil-chairde m’óige ar bhruacha na Laoi

Nach minic a d’éiríodh grian lonrach na spéire
Nach minic a bhuail sí faoi uiscí na dtonn
Ó d’fhága mise an lá siúd mo mháithrín dhil Éireann
Agus chuaigh mé thar sáile chun na tíre seo anonn

Ach fós in mo chroí istigh tá cuimhne ar lasadh
Ar maidin, iarnóin ‘s le titim na hoíche
‘S i m’aisling arís bím i gcónaí mo sheasamh
Ar charraig fhíor m’óige ar bhruacha na Laoi

Translated into English

How sad I was when I left home
And bade farewell to you, Ireland, my love
Though I looked happy, my eyes were tearful
Separated from you whom I’ll never see again

Separated forever, by hills and by valleys
And never again see the beautiful city of Cork
Separated forever from faithful friends
Oh faithful friends of my youth on the banks of the Lee

And many the times the bright sun of the skies would rise
And many the times it would set under waves of water
Since I left that day from my loyal mother Éire
And went overseas to this land

And in my heart still there are memories still vivid
In the morning, afternoon and at nightfall
In my vision again I remain forever
On the true rock of my youth on the banks of the Lee

Shownotes:

Join us today for a song by Renata, along
with a great interview including her experiences
with Sean Nós.

Renata is the host of our ‘Hello Fada’ podcast
on the Irish Language. She has generously consented
to perform today on our Song Podcast.

This ‘code’ song has many ties to Irish history,
i.e. the Mass Rock and religious persecution of
the native Irish in their own country.

Our thanks to Renata.  Be sure to listen to her
on todays podcast.

Lyrics (one of several variations):

In the Irish:
An raibh tú ag an gCarraig?
nó a’ bhfaca tú féin mó grá
nó a’ bhfaca tú gile,
finne agus scéimh na mná?

Nó a’ bhfaca tú t-úll
ba chumhra is ba mhilse bláth?
nó a’ bhfaca tú mo Vailintín
Nó a’ bhfuil sí á cloí mar táim.

Ó bhí mé ag an gCarraig,
is chonaic mé mé féin dó grá
Ó chonaic mé gile
finne agus scéimh na mná

Ó chonaic mé an t-ull
ba chumhra is ba mhilse bláth
Agus chonaic mé do Vailintín
agus ní sí á cloí mar ‘láir.

In the English Language:

Were You At The Rock ?
Were You at the Rock?
Or did you yourself see my love,
Or did you see a brightness,
the fairness and the beauty of the woman?

Or did you see the apple,
the sweetest and most fragrant blossom?
Or did you see my Valentine?
Is she being subdued as they are saying?

O, I was at the rock
And I myself saw your love
O, I saw a brightness,
the fairness and the beauty of the woman

O, I did see the apple
the sweetest and most fragrant blossom
and I saw your Valentine
she is not being subdued as they are saying.
