This song is a celebration of the currach, the fishing boat that is still used in the west of Ireland. The sheet music includes both the original Gaelic words and an accurate, singable English translation. It is 4 pages and includes words (3 verses in each language), music, chord symbols, and an arrangement for the harp that does justice to its lovely melody. Easy to intermediate.
