Fainne Geal an Lae

Search County Kerry



Kerry has many delightful songs in the Gaelic language, one of the best loved of these being “Fainne Geal an Lae.” The song is about wooing a lovely Girl on the banks of Loch Lene, one of Killarney’s famous lakes, at the dawning of the day.


Fainne Geal an Lae


Maidin moch do ghabhas amach

Ar bhruacha Locha Lein

An samhradh ag teacht san chraobh le m`ais

Gus lonnradh te on ngrein

Ar thais dom tri bhailte-puirt

As banta mine reidh

Ce gheobhainn le m`ais ach an

Cuilfhionn deas

Le fainne geal an Lae


Ni raibh brog na stocai caidhp nd cloc

Ar mo stoirin og n speir

Ach folt fionn orga sios go troi gh

Ag fas go barr an fheir

Bhi calan cruite ci na glaic

S ar dhrucht ba dheas a sceimh

Do thug barr-ghean o Venus deas

Le fainne geal an Lae


Do shuigh an bhrideach sios le m`ais

Ar bhinse glas den bhfear
