Óró, sé do bheatha 'bhaile!

Óró, sé do bheatha 'bhaile!
Ohrow, shay dhu vahha walyeh!

Sé do bheatha a bhean ba léanmhar!
Shay dhu vahha ah van buh lanevor!
B'é ár gcreach tú bheith i ngéibhinn
Bay aer grack thew veh ingavein
Do dhúiche bhreá i seilbh méirleach
Dhu goohe vrah ih shelliv marelock
'S tú diolta leis na Ghallaibh
Sthew deelthe lesh nah Gooliv

Óró, sé do bheatha 'bhaile!
Ohrow, shay dhu vahha walyeh!
Óró, sé do bheatha 'bhaile!
