Hi, to all.
I am posting with an Irish Lass, From Limerick, and now living in the Scottish Highlands. But she speaks both forms of Gaeilge. Although we post to each other in English, She usually throws in afew lines of Gaeilge. I do my best, with my Dictionary, But either can't find alot of the words, or don't understand the "meaning" (???). Can anyone help in translating this:
"Gur ann an America tha sinn an dràsd',
Fo dhubhar na coille, nach teirig gu bràth.
'N uair dh'fhalbhas an dùlachd 's a thionndaidh's am blàths,
Bithidh cnothan, bidh ùbhlan 's bithidh an siùcar a'fàs."
