Fáilte go dtí ár saol síochánta
You were not at my birth,
Far from a stranger to me,
I feel I have known you for eternity.
Emerald of Isles swathed in green, vision of dreams..
Your heavy embrace captures me.
Islands in islands breathe life and ouse charm
You deny none who tread your stones.
So often others deny the same.
You have been bruised, shaken but never taken.
Unlike my heart and soul,
When I smile my last smile.
When I breathe my last sigh.
I pledge to you my all, all that remains of me…
