An toisc a thug tú chun mo dhaoine The thing that brought you among my people Ón gcéin mhéith don charraig gharbh from rich distance to rough rock Ba chéile léi an chré bheo was something in the vital clay, Is an leid a scéith as léan is danaid. a trace escaping of woe and loss. Níor éistis scéal na gcloch, It was not from stone you took your stories, Bhí éacht i scéal an teallaigh, but the wonders in stories by the fire, Lines from: ‘Ómós do John Millington Synge’ by Máirtín Ó Direáin with the poet’s own
translation into English.
