Oh drat, I was hoping that the grammar might be similar (especially when it took me this long just to figure out the whole french one tongue.gif ).

Sorry to disappoint you WofO, but I didn't translate my signature, but rather I happened to come across it one day when I was flipping through some old books. I like the way is sounded, and felt it was more about accepting your fate and dealing with it accordingly rather than struggling against it. So more like the Beatles then Picard, but I love them both biggrin.gif

Maybe in my time in New Brunswick I'll become more proficient at Gaelic...

So... Um... Awen... Skyclad... Is that, like, a perpetual state with you or only when you're listening to CelticRadio? HMMM? Enquiring minds want to know... wink.gif

Okay, now for some info on Gaelic dictionaries... Perhaps it would be best if I post this over in the Languages forum, just to keep this with similar topics. Hope that's okay! I'll see you over there!

Does anyone know the English translation for the lyrics of the song, Brian Boru by Allen Stivell?

I dont know the song, but I found the words on the net in Irish and Breton (unfortunately I can only translate the Irish parts)

Brian Bórú
Alan Stivell
(Gaeilge)
Maraíodh Brian Boru chun beatha na hÉireann
Brian Boru was killed for the life of Ireland
Síochain i gCúige Uladh agus i mBaile 'Cliath
Peace in the Province of Ulster and in Dublin
Aontacht an teaghlaigh, aontacht na dtuath
Unity of the family, unity of the countryside
Aontacht an domhain is na gCeilteach
Unity of the world and of the Celts

(Brezhoneg)
Diouzh nerzh ar c'hadou da nerzh an ehan
Diouzh 'bed doueek bennozh ar c'haroud
(Gaeilge)
Ó neart an chatha go neart na síochana
From the strength of battle to the strength of peace
Ón bhith dhiaga beannacht an ghrá
From divine existence blessings of love

Duirt siad gurbh é seo sochraid ár muintire
They said that this was the funeral of our community
Gur chóir duine bheinn sollúnta féin*
(...... this doesnt make much sense to me)
That a person should I would be solemn myself
Bíodh nach raibh brónach
Be, that wasn't sad (??)

(Brezhoneg)
Marv Brian Boru 'reiñ buhez 'n Iwerzhon
Dihan e Bro-Ulad ha ba kêr Dulenn
Unded an tiegezh, unded an dud-mañ
Unded ar Gelted hag an douar

(Gaeilge)
Maraíodh Brian Boru chun beatha na hÉireann
Síochain i gCúige Uladh agus i mBaile 'Cliath
Aontacht an teaghlaigh, aontacht na dtuath
Aontacht an domhain is na gCeilteach
(as above)

(Brezhoneg)
Diouzh nerzh ar c'hadou da nerzh an ehan
Diouzh 'bed doueek bennozh ar c'haroud
(Gaeilge)
O neart an chatha go neart na síochana
On bhith dhiaga beannacht an ghrá

Tá muid 'nós na haimsire
We are like the weather
Go h-airid an ghrian
especially the sun
Agus thogh muid áit bhóg cois ashann
.... there must be spelling mistakes here, I think it should be:
Agus togh muid áit bhog cois abhann
And we choose a gentle place beside a river


(* maybe this should be "gur chóir do dhuine bheith sollúnta féin" - 'that one should be solemn')


I have a feeling that the Breton bits mean the same as the Irish bits just after them, but maybe someone else could tell you for sure
