Duilleoga ar an Life (Séamus Ó Néill)
 

Duilleoga, duilleog' ar snámh, donn, geal is rua
Ar abhainn na Life ag seoladh, ag seoladh le sruth.
Spréigh siad brat glas...ar bharra na gcrann
Ar fud cuibhreann is coillte 
I bhfad, i bhfad ó shin ann,
I bhfad ó shin ann.

 

Duilleoga, duilleog' ar snámh, lá ceoch fómhair.
Ag iompar na háilleachta trí shráideanna dobhair.
Spréigh siad brat glas...ar bharra na gcrann.
Ar fud cuibhreann is coillte 
I bhfad, i bhfad ó shin ann,
I bhfad ó shin ann

Leaves, floating leaves, brown, bright and red
On the River Liffey, sailing, sailing in a stream.
They spread out wide, on tops of the trees,
On bushes and woodland
A long a long time ago
A long time ago

Leaves, floating leaves, a foggy autumnal day
Carrying the beauty through flowing roads
They spread out wide, on tops of the trees,
Across fields and woodland
A long a long time ago
A long time ago
