The Poitín

Chan Steven Horgan ó Chúil na Cupóg an t-amhrán so do Chiarán Mac Mathúna ina thigh féin i gCill Garbháin i 1955. Dúirt sé gurbh é an cúipéir, Tom O’Sullivan, a chúm.
Is le Seán Ó Liatháin a luaitear an t-amhrán so anois. Canann sé é leis ‘An Crúiscín Lán‘, ag babhtáil véarsaí Gaeilge/Béarla gach ré véarsa. Tá sé taifeadta aige ar an nDD ‘An Crúiscín Lán’ (2017).

Oh come all you lads and lassies fair attend to my oration
I hope you’ll hear me in my song and give me an ovation,
I now attend your voices and your kind consideration
To wish me joy and happiness in exporting transportation.

Agus geobham arís an crúiscín is bíodh sé lán
Grá mo chroí mo chrúiscín, sláinte gheal mo mhúirnín,
Is cuma liom do chúilín dubh nó bán
Agus geobham arís an crúiscín is bíodh sé lán.

It was in the month of June or so some cowardly hearted traitors
They went into the barrack and their story they related,
They said that in that western glen far far out in the mountain
There was a poitín Irish flowing from a crystal fountain.

Agus geobham arís an crúiscín is bíodh sé lán…

Twas early the next morning the police made preparations
They hired a car and driver to take them to the station,
But when they reached the shanty they found they were mistaken
There was neither manafacturer or anything relating.

Agus geobham arís an crúiscín is bíodh sé lán…

Now this crystal drop right from the still t’would cure all kinds of ailments
T’would cure the illit jaunders the scarlet and the measles,
T’would banish heart diseases, from your lungs t’would drive ‘flamation,
From your soul t’would drive the auld divil, from your heart t’would drive temptation

Agus geobham arís an crúiscín is bíodh sé lán…

Now Christmas is before us, boys, were in a consternation
We don’t know where to get a drop without adulteration,
Our Irish manufacturer is the finest in the nation
Because it is distributed without duty, vat or taxation.

Agus geobham arís an crúiscín is bíodh sé lán…

And now to conclude and finish and I hope I said no treason,
Freedom is soon dawning and we’ll have home rule sa Ghaeltacht
We’ll banish all land grabbers and cowardly hearted traitors
And we’ll have our poitín Irish still ansúd gan bhaochas d’éinne.

Agus geobham arís an crúiscín is bíodh sé lán…
