An tEarrach agus Lá 'le Bríde



Anois teacht an earraigh,
Beidh an lá ag dul chun sineadh,
Is tar éis na féil Bríde
Ardóidh mé mo sheol.

Now coming of the spring,
The day will be lengthening,
And after St. Bridget’s Day,
I shall raise my sail.

(as “Cill Aodáin” le Antoine Ó Reachtabhra [Raftery ‘an File’] 1779-1835)
