Caiseal gan cliar, fiailteach ná macraí ar dtús|
Is beanna-bhruig Bhriain ciarthuilte, 'mhadraíbh uísc,
Ealla gan triar triaithe de mhacaibh rí Mumhan
fá deara dhom triall riamh ort, a Vailintín Brún.
Because the might of Cashel is withered all away,|
And the badger skulks in Brian's house, seeking out his prey,
And the laughing kings are all deprived of scepter and of crown,
I have traveled far to meet you, Valentine Brown.
