Clannad – Banba Oir lyrics

Idir dhá láimh
Daoine fíuntach
Scríobh an ogham
I mbanba óir

I nglas héinne
Fial ó nádúir
Fonn ceoil
I mbanba óir

Lios na aileach
Draicht draiotheach
Tuamai rithe
I mbanba oir

Clochán naofa
Cill is caisléain
Truit na gceilteach
I mbanba óir

Both two hands
Of noble people
Write the ogham
In Golden Ireland

In young company
Noble of nature
Desire of music
In Golden Ireland

Ring forts of rock
The magic of the druids
Tombs of kings
In Golden Ireland

Holy clochan*
Churchyards and castles
Sound of the Celtic (or secret?) language**
In Golden Ireland.
