    Ní mhairenn oighre Murchaidh

  1. Ní mhairenn oighre Murchaidh—
    mór cumthair dona brégaibh—
    dá maradh ní bheith choidhche
    lá go n-oidhche inar n-égmais.
  2. Ag techt chugainn as uainne
    do bhíoth daoine uaisle oile;
    ag techt chugainn is chugainn
    do bhíoth m'fher cumainn croidhe.
  3. Créd dhénuid muinnter Dhálaigh
    ón mbás-soin dá ttí an cogadh?
    fa meinic laodh mo chroidhe
    ós cenn m'fhine dá cosnamh.
  4. Fa dhó sa ló dar bféghuin,
    an té fa ndénuim osnadh,
    do thigedh sé go bádhach
    ó Áoibh Rátha go Brosnuigh.
  5. Do-chuaidh Diarmuid, mo thruaighe,
    fúinne a bhfuaire nár bhrethnuigh:
    ní thig sé chugainn choidhche—
    acht ocht n-oidhche sa tsechtmhuin.
  6.  p.192
  7. Diarmuid tar éis a éuga,
    a fhir dhénta na huaidhe,
    ná bí dá chur a dtalmhuin,
    ní gar dhó anmhuin uainne.

  8. Ní.
