Dervish - An t-Úll - CLIP Cathy Jordan performing in a pub,




Dervish - An t-Úll - Cathy Jordan in pub, I guess 1999 on Midsummer's Night and that was recorded in Spiddal and Calry (Sligo). More details on song's origins, etc. welcome.

Tá scéilín nua 'gam le h-insint dóibhse
*** I have a new story to tell you
Cúrsaí spóirt agus comhrá dí
*** It's good crack and chat over drink
Úll breá gleoite do chuireas i mo phóca
*** A fine lovely apple I put in my pocket
'S ni bhfuaras romham ach prátín síl
*** And all I found was a seed potato

Curfá: *** Chorus:
Ó mo thuírse mar shileann mo shúile
*** Oh sadly my eyes cry
I ndiaidh an úll ud a bhí breá buí
*** After that fine yellow apple
An óig-bhean uasal bhí t'reis é thabhairt domh
*** And the lovely young woman who gave it to me
'S do thabhairfinn púnt ar é bhlaiseadh arís
*** And I'd give a pound to taste it again

Do shiúlais Cléire agus Carraig Aonair
*** I walked Clare Island and Carrig Aonor
Cuanta Béara bhí romham sa tslí
*** The bays of Béara Island were before me on the way
Puinte na nGréige & na nDorsaí Maola
An fhiach 's an lao taobh amuigh de Bhaoi
*** The raven and the calf outside of Baoi

Do shiúlais Cualach mar a bhíos buartha
*** I walked through Cualach because I was sad
An pharoiste Thuaidh a 's na hAdhraí
*** The northern parish and Eyeries
San oileán Muarseadh d'inis dom buachaill
*** On the Island of Muarseadh a young man told me
Nach bhfáilghinn a tuairise go dtéinn thar snaidhm
*** That I wouldn't get word of her until I'd tie the knot

(Curfá) (Chorus)

Do shíulíos Coíbh agus Baíle na Móna
*** I walked through Cobh and Baile na Mona
Cathair Tún Tóime & Inis Seircín
Síor ar a chósta sea d'inis dhom stróinse
*** On the east coast someone told me
Go rabh sé 'na sheo acu ar Sráid Néidín
*** That it was the laughing stock of Néidín
