You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Maighdeanan na h‑àiridh

Language: Scots Gaelic

Thug mi'n òidhche raoir 's mi bruadar
Mar ri nìonagan na buaile,
B' fhìnealt uasal min na gruagaich
seinn nan duanag anns an àiridh
Thug mi'n oidhche raoir 'san àiridh
Thug mi'n oidhche raoir 'san àiridh,
Chaith mi'n oidhche cridheil caoimhneil,
Mar ri maighdeanan na h-àiridh.
Thug mi'n oidhche raoir 'san àiridh
'S crodh a' sileadh bainne tàlaidh
'S dealt na h-oidhche sileadh caoimhneis
Air na maighdeanan 'san àiridh
Thug mi'n oidche raoir 'san àiridh
Thug mi'n oidhche raoir 'san àiridh
Chaith mi'n oidche criheil caoimhneil
Mar ri maighdeanan na h-airidh.
'S cianail dusgadh an fhirfhuadain
'Se siorionndrainn tir a bhruadair,
'S tiamhaidh buan da thar na stuadhan,
Ceol nan gruagach anns an àiridh
Thug mi'n oidhche raoir 'san àiridh
Thug mi'n oidhche raoir 'san airidh
Chaith mi'n oidhche cridheil caoimhneil
Mar ri maighdeanan na h-àiridh.
