God is strong and He has a good mother.
Note: The Irish language, like the Irish people, has a special place for Mary, the Mother of God. Her name is “Muire” in Irish. This is not to be confused with the other Irish word for Mary, which is “Máire.” In Irish there is only one “Muire,” Máthair Dé (Mother of God), Muire Mháthair (Our Lady, Literally: Mother Mary), An Mhaighean Mhuire (the Virgin Mary), An Mhaighdean Bheannaithe (the Blessed Virgin). All other women named Mary have the name “Máire” on them.
|Sé do bheatha, a Mhuire,||Hail Mary|
|atá lán de ghrásta,||full of grace,|
|Tá an Tiarna leat.||The Lord is with thee.|
|Is beannaithe thú idir mná,||Blessed art thou amongst women,|
|Agus is beannaithe toradh
do bhroinne, Íosa.
|And blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
a Mháthair Dé,
Mother of God,
|Guigh orainn na peacaigh,||Pray for us sinners,|
|Anois agus ar uair ár mbáis.||Now and at the hour of our death.|
