Could someone translate the words to this tune?

An Mhaighdean Mhara

I cosúil gur mheath tú nó gur thréig tú an ghreann,
Tá an sneachta go frasach fá bhéal na trá,
Do chúl buí daite is do bhéilín shámh.
Siúd chugaibh Mary Chionnaith
Is í i ndéidh an Éirne a shnámh.

A mháithrín mhilis dúirt Máire bhán,
Fá bhruach an chladaigh is fá bhéal na trá,
Maighdean mhara mo mháithrín ard.
Siúd chugaibh Mary Chionnaith
Is í i ndéidh an Éirne a shnámh.

Tá mise tuirseach agus beidh go lá
Mo Mháire bhruinneall is mo Phádraig bán,
Ar bharr na dtonna is fá bhéal na trá.
Siúd chugaibh mary Chionnaith
Is í i ndéidh an Éirne a shnámh.

here you go


The Mermaid

It seems that you have faded away and abandoned the love of life
The snow is spread about at the mouth of the sea
Your yellow flowing hair and little gentle mouth
We give you Mary Chinidh to swim forever in the Erne

‘My dear mother,’ said blonde Mary
By the edge of the shore and the mouth of the sea
‘A mermaid is my noble mother’
We give you Mary Chinidh to swim forever in the Erne

I am tired and will be forever
My fair Mary and my blond Patrick
On top of the waves and by the mouth of the sea
We give you Mary Chinidh to swim forever in the Erne

The night is dark and the wind is high
The Plough can be seen high in the sky
But on top of the waves and by the mouth of the sea
We give you Mary Chinidh to swim forever in the Erne
