Clannad singing Dulaman.

Lyrics:

English Translation:
Curfá: Chorus (after each verse):
Dúlamán na binne buí Seaweed of the yellow cliff
Dúlamán Gaelach Irish seaweed
Dúlamán na binne buí Seaweed of the yellow cliff
Dúlamán Gaelach Irish seaweed
A'níon mhín ó Oh gentle daughter
Sin anall na fir shúirí Here come the wooing men
A mháithair mhín ó Oh gentle mother
Cuir na roithléan go dtí mé Put the wheels in motion for me
Tá ceann buí óir There is a yellow-gold head
Ar an dúlamán gaelach On the Irish seaweed
Tá dhá chluais mhaol There are two blunt ears
Ar an dúlamán gaelach On the Irish seaweed
Rachaimid 'un an Iúr We'll go to Newry
Leis an dúlamán gaelach With the Irish seaweed
Ceannóimid bróga daora I would buy expensive shoes
Ar an dúlamán gaelach Said the Irish seaweed
Bróga breaca dubha The Irish seaweed has
Ar an dúlamán gaelach Beautiful black shoes
Tá bearéad agus triús The Irish seaweed has
Ar an dúlamán gaelach A beret and trousers
Ó chuir mé scéala chuici I spent time telling her the story
Go gceannóinn cíor dí That I would buy a comb for her
'Sé an scéal a chuir sí chugam The story she told back to me
Go raibh a ceann cíortha That she is well-groomed
Caidé thug tú 'na tíre? "What did you bring from the land?"
Arsa an dúlamán gaelach Says the Irish seaweed
Ag súirí le do níon "Courting with your daughter"
Arsa an dúlamán maorach Says the stately seaweed
Chan fhaigheann tú mo 'níon "You're not taking my daughter"
Arsa an dúlamán gaelach Says the Irish seaweed
Bheul, fuadóidh mé liom í "Well, I'd take her with me"
Arsa an dúlamán maorach Says the stately seaweed
Dúlamán na binne buí Seaweed of the yellow cliff
Dúlamán a' tsleibhe Seaweed of the mountain
Dúlamán na farraige Seaweed from the sea
Is dúlamán a' deididh Seaweed __
