MOCH'S MI G EIRDLE SA MHADUINN.
From Lieutenant Campbell's work I. also quote the following boat-song. It is known as " Moch's mi g Eirdle sa Mhaduinn." I give one verse in Gaelic :
Gaelic.
I. " Moch's mi g eirdle sa Mhaduinn, Moch's mi g eirdle sa Mhaduinn, 'Strom enslainteach m'aigne,
'O nach t'eibhiad mi'n caidreamh nam braithrean, 'O nach t'eibh iad mi'n caidreamh nam braithrean."
English Version.
I. " On rising in the morning,
Heavy and sorrowful was my mind,
Since they did not call me to the fellowship of the
brethren, Since they did not call me to the fellowship of the brethren."
