Africa in Irish

The Irish Gaeltacht summer camp that took the internet by storm with song covers like Adele’s ‘Hello,’ Avicii’s ‘Wake me up’ and many other covers

They now released the Irish version of the famous Toto’s ‘Africa’ song known all over the world.

The 80’s hit has been translated into Irish, and it sounds better than ever!

Well done once again guys.

Once again we have included the lyrics in Irish so you can sing along:

Liricí:

Ceol na dtonn a’ bulaladh trom anocht
chloiseannach cogarnáil ‘s sioscadh cainte scaoilte
Eitilt isteach ar leath uair théis a hocht 
Geallach gheal a’ lonrú síos, á treoradh chuig ceann scríbe 
D’iarr comhairle ar sheanfhear siúil na slí 
Mé ‘g iarrabriathra cabhrach cneasta aniar ón am a bhí
‘Sé dúirt sé liom le súile glé –
Breathnaigh a Mhac- sé ansin os comhair d’aghaidh

Is fada liom an lá go mbeidh tú a’am go deo 
Níl tada a bhféadfá rá a choinneos uaim mo ghá níos mó 
Bogha ceatha sa spéir fud na hAifrice 
Goile uait anois a’ déana’ rudaí nach raibh a’ainn

Cú allta a’ glaoch go mall san oí’
Iad uaigneach brónach fada leo roinnt sóláis ‘s ardú meanamna
Tá ‘s a’am go gcaithfear cloí lem’ chroí,
Mar ‘ bheadh Kilimanjaro ‘g éirí nós Olympus tharis an Serengeti
Ag iarra’ lochtanna a leigheas, 
Faitíos orm romham fhéin a’ ghoil ar aghaidh

Is fada liom an lá go mbeidh tú a’am go deo 
Níl tada a bhféadfá rá a choinneos uaim mo ghá níos mó 
Bogha ceatha sa spéir fud na hAifrice 
Goile uait anois a’ déana’ rudaí nach raibh a’ainn

Bogha ceatha sa spéir fud na hAifrice
