Dia daoibh,
I know that's far too early to be talking about this now, but can someone
please help me with this one.
An dreoilín is of course the Wren (Rí na nÉan) and he has a silk tie, and they
have come to see the couple (lanúin an tí seo) of this house, but what does
the rest mean? le do thoil.

Dreoilín a fuareas thíos ar an inse,
Faoi chabha cloiche agus carbhat síoda air.
Thugas-sa chugaibh é, a lanúin an tí seo,
Is gura seacht fearr sibh ar mo theacht arís chugaibh.

Slán Franc
