About this Video
Translation of Spailpin Fanagh from Irish into English as written and sung here by Mike O'Laughlin. See also the Irish (Gaeilge) version recorded by Mike as well.
The Wandering Laborer
I will never go again to Caishel
Selling myself in hire
Selling my freedom by the wall
Sitting by the roadside
Rude, boorish men from everywhere
Coming on their horses
Come away with me, the road is long
The road of the wandering worker
