I haven't had any luck finding anything so far. Will have to go consult my collection of music books and see if I have it somewhere at home. Will let you know next week if I find it.

I don't have the CD in front of me so can't be sure, but I think the lyrics are in the liner notes to Lasairfhíona Ní Chonaola’s album An Raicín Álainn, written in both Gaelic and English. I don't think I can post it here without violating copyright laws. I highly recommend both of Lasairfhíona's albums--the purchase of which gives legal access to the lyrics.
