This next treat was sent out by George through his Irish Heritage E-Mail Group (link above). It's a beautiful rendition of

'Silent Night' by Enya.


Here follow the song lyrics in Gaeilge, along with their pronunciation:

Silent Night in Irish - Oiche Chiuin as Gaeilge

Silent night
Oiche Chiuin
ee-khhuh khhoon

Oiche chiuin, oiche Mhic De,
ee-khhuh khhoon, ee'ha vic day,

Cach 'na suan dis araon,
kaw'k na soon, deesh arain,

Dis is dílse 'faire le speis
deesh uhs deesh-uh far-uh luh spaysh

Naoin beag gnaoigheal ceananntais caomh
Neen byug gnee'hal kyan'antish kave,

Criost, 'na chodhladh go seimh.
Kreest na kulah guh shave,

Criost, 'na chodhladh go seimh.
Kreest na kulah guh shave,

***

Oiche chiuin, oiche Mhic De,
ee-khhuh khhoon, ee'ha vic day,

Aoiri ar dtus chuala 'n sceal;
Airee air doo's kulah nah shkay'l;

Alleluia aingeal ag glaoch.
Al-la-loo-ya angal egg glayuck,

Cantain suairc i ngar is i gcein
Kantan su-ark EE-gnar iss EEgain,

Criost an Slanaitheoir Fein
Kreest on slawn-a-hore fain,

Criost an Slanaitheoir Fein
Kreest on slawn-a-hore fain.
