  1. Sean amhran na h-áite
    “An Pósadh glégeal i mbaile Ui liagh”
    Ag dul in a aifreann dom le tuillle i n-áirde,
    bhí an lá ina a bháisteach ach stad an gaoth,
    Ó casadh an t-aingeal dom is mé ag dul tríd bearna,
    Is thuit mé an lá sin i ngrádh le mnaoi,
    labhair mé léithe go caothach marnas,
    Is d’eolarach fogluimthe (olluighthe) dfreagair sí.
    “O” dubhairt sí “Raifteiri bi ag imthacht (is céad fáilte)
    Is chuaidh mé sa lá sin go baile Uí Liagh.
    II
    Nach aoibheann aerac, ar thaobh an t-sléibhe
    is tú ag dearcadh síos uait ar baile Uí liagh
    ag gabháil trí coilltibh piocadh cnó is sméara
    is ag siubhal na bóithre tré baile Uí liagh,
    is dá mbéinse pósta ag bláth na h-óige (blághann?_
    faoi lucht na torann ní leigfinn í,
    agus capaill is cóstai go n-imteocaidh sa bóithrín
    A guídh mo stóirín go baile Uí liagh.
    III
    Shiubhal mé Sasana agus an fhrainnc fré a chéile
    Acht ní fhacfas féirín ar bith mar í
    Acht dhá chéad cléibh is iad a cur le chéile
    Is dá bhfaighinn páirt mhor d’Éirinn ní feadfainn scríobh.
