Oy. I was definitely not paying attention.

It's more context than anything. While "go maith" is technically "well," it gets used in situations where we'd use an adjective in English as well. But since I'd already translated "he" this and "he" that, my brain should have automatically supplied "he" in that sentence as well.

Get the Ræliksen CD here
éist leis an gceol

tá sult na saoirse i gcló na gcrann
is grá don tsúil a fiaradh,
tá dúil sa rud tá casta cam
is gráin don bhog is don díreach.
