"Gabhaim Molta Bride"

Traditional Gaelic

Quill Pen Divider

Gabhaim molta Bri/de
Ionmhain i/ le hE/irinn
Ionmhain le gach ti/r i/
Molaimis go le/ir i/.

Lo/chrann geal na Laighneach
A' soilsiu/ feadh na ti/re
Ceann ar o/ghaibh E/ireann
Ceann na mban ar mi/ne.

Tig an Geimhreadh dian dubh
A' gearradh lena ghe/ire
Ach ar La/ 'le Bri/de
Gar du/inn earrach E/ireann.

Translation
as provided by Ellen Reed

I praise (or pay homage to) Saint Brigid
~-~ Ionmholta=Praiseworthy so maybe:
She is praised in Ireland or praiseworthy?
She is praiseworthy in all countries
Let us all praise her

The bright torch of Leinster
Shining throughout the country
Head (or role model) of Irish youth
Head (or role model) of our Smooth or Gentle or Submissive women

The house of winter is very dark
Cutting with its sharpness
But on Saint Brigid's Day
Spring is near to us in Ireland or Spring is near to Ireland
