Re: A Chomaraigh Aoibhinn O

I listened to the recording by Solas, and was wondering what she is singing about! It is a beautiful mountain range in southeast Ireland. Below are the lyrics translated into English, which I found here (https://www.allthelyrics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=167866) . I make no claim to accuracy, not knowing Gaelic…

My heartfelt blessings
On your valleys and mountains
Sweet Comeragh
And on your cheeful people
So naturally kind
Sweet Comeragh
On your shining streams
And your leafy woodlands
Your honeyed slopes
And your gleaming meadows
My heart fills with love
For all of them surely
Sweet Comeragh

Your rugged peaks
Are a handsome sight
Sweet Comeragh
As the rising sun
Sets them aflame
Sweet Comeragh
Cliffs and steep slopes
In every direction
Like a satin weave
From a magic loom
As the dew falls
From the heavens high
Sweet Comeragh

I was a while away
From your beauty
Sweet Comeragh
Slaving so hard
In a foreign land
Sweet Comeragh
Base work it was
Just making a living
Far from my home
’Neath the shade of your mountains
So I came back to you
The flower of the Déise
Sweet Comeragh
