Caitlín Tiriall Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. Recorded by Andrew Murphy. Also recorded by Skara Brae.

Ó tá an[G] oíche seo ag sioc agus [Em]tá sí [C]fuar,
  
Agus [G]d'éalaigh mo [C]ghrása le [D]fear eile [G]uaim,
  
A ghrua [G]dheas lasta is a [Em]bhéilín [C]bhinn,
       
Is a [G]Chití a s[C]tór, tá mé [D]breoite [G]tinn.

Is í Cití a mhearaigh is a bhreoigh mo chiall,
Is a d'fhág mé ag osnaí' go mór 'na diaidh,
Is é monuar go bhfuair mise léann ariamh,
Nuair a léigh mé do litirse, a Chaitlín Tiriall.


Níl toint' ar mo bhrollach nár lig mé le gaoth,
Is má fhágaim an baile ní phillfidh mé choich',
Tháinig lionndubh ar m'aigne agus d'athraigh mo chiall,
Is nach trom sin ar d'anamsa, a Chaitlín Tiriall.


ó gheall tusa domhsa agus gheall tú fá dhó,
Nach ndéanfá mo mhalairt anois ná go deo,
Ná go bhfaca mé tusa is an fear údaí ag ól,
Is tú i gcúl an tom dreasóig' is mug leanna in do dhorn.


Níl bó is níl gamhain is níl caoire amháin,
ó bhruach Loch Oirgheall go malaidh an tsléibh' bháin,
Nach dtabharfainn do Chití ar an aon phóig amháin,
Is nach í a leigheasfadh an arraing tá frid mo lár.


ó shiúil mise thoir agus shiúil mise thiar,
Sligeach na long agus cé Bhaile átha Cliath,
Macasamhail mo chailín ní fhaca mé ariamh,
Nó go dtáinig mé 'na bhaile ionsar Chaitlín Tiriall.


Is nach mé an fear mallaithe tá i ngrá le bhliain
Is go mb'fhearr liom bean agam ná a bhfaca mé ariamh
ó fuigfidh mé na hAspail is an Eaglais uaim siar
Agus leanfaidh mé go héag tú, a Chaitlín Tiriall.

Skara Brae who no longer play together were around in the early 1970's and recorded an album ''Skara Brae'' in 1972. In the group were Dáithí Sproule on guitar and vocals, Dáithí is the man who invented the DADGAD tuining system on guitar in Ireland, he also played with Altan. Mícheál Ó Domhnaill also played guitar in the group and sang, he later formen The Bothy Band. Also in the group were Maighread who was aged 15 at the time on vocals and Tríona who was the brother of Mícheál. They were famous at the time for blending traditional Irish songs with relatively modern sounding accompaniments as well as making good use of harmony. This was new to Gaelic songs at the time but The Wolfe Tones had being doing it with English songs since the 60's.
