Amhrán an Lae – Dé Máirt

Seo é an dara amhrán i gcóir Seachtain na Gaeilge. Is é “Óró ‘Sé do Bheatha ‘Bhaile” an t-ainm atá ar an amhrán seo agus á sé á chanadh ag Paul Brady.

The name of the song translates as “Oh-ro You’re Welcome Home”. “Óró” is a cheer, while “sé do bheatha ‘bhaile” translates as “you are welcome home.” The song in its original form dates back to the third Jacobite rising in 1745-6. In the early 20th century it received new verses by the nationalist poet Patrick Pearse and was often sung by members of the Irish Volunteers during the Easter Rising. It was also sung as a fast march during the Irish War of Independence.

Bainigí taitneamh as!

Amhrán an Lae – Dé Luain

Fáilte go dtí an chéad amhrán i gcóir Seachtain na Gaeilge. Is é An Poc ar Buile an t-ainm atá ar an amhrán seo. Tá sé á chanadh ag Seán Ó Liatháin as Cúil Aodha i gContae Chorcaí.

“The Mad Puck Goat”. From an original poem by Dónal Ó Mulláin in the early 20th century, the song was made famous in the early 1960s when recorded by Seán Ó Sé to an arrangement by Seán Ó Riada. This is a song about a mad ferocious goat that travels around Cork and Kerry causing havoc and damage where ever he goes. The song is also associated with the town of Killorglin in Co Kerry. Each year in Killorglin, Co. Kerry (in the month of Lunasa) August 10th, a Puck Fair is held. The Puck, a wild mountain goat, with decorated horns, is paraded through the streets with applause, cheering and music. On arrival at the town square he is crowned and then ceremoniously raised on a scaffold platform some twenty five feet high. The Puck resides here for the next three days and nights looking down on his subjects.
