I’m looking for a new tattoo… I’m half Irish & half Scottish… I was looking for a knot/symbol/word that would represent this but can’t find anything…
Is there a celtic knot or symbol that also represents free spirit?

Clannad with the beautiful Gaelic song ‘Thíos Cois na Trá Domh’. This song is extremely popular in Irish-speaking areas, especially in Gaoth Dobhair (Gweedore in English). Lyrics: Thíos cois na trá domh, in ndoimhneacht na h-oíche An saol mhór ina gcodhladh, ‘s mise liom féin Na h-éanacha mara ag scairtigh go léanmhar Cosúil le h-anamnacha bochta i bpéin. Iomlán gealaí ‘s iomlán rabharta Aoibhneas ‘s ciúineas, ‘s áilleacht sa domhain Crónán na farraige ag dul siar ar mo chluasa Bog-cheol an uisce ag sileadh san abhainn. Istigh ar na h-inseáin tá sean-reilig bheannaithe An áit inar mhaireadh naoimh san aimsir fadó Tá daoine istigh ann ag chaith seal go h-aerach Ní shiúlfaidh siad thar fán chladaigh níos mó. Bhuail uaigneas m’intinn ‘s mé ag amharc ar an reilig ‘S mé ag meadhradh ar dhaoine istigh ann ina luí Fir a’s mná óga, seandaoine ‘s páistí Muintir mo mhuintir ‘s cairde mo chroí. Tá na coiligh ag glaoch ‘s na réalta ag bánú Tá an ghealach ina luí ‘s ní fada go lá Slán agat anois a shean-reilig bheannaithe ‘S na daoine a shiúlfadh liom síos cois na trá. English translation: Down by the beach, in the deep of night The big world is sleeping and I am alone The sea-birds are calling sorrowfully Like poor souls in pain Full moon and full tide Bliss and calmness and beauty in the world The murmur of the sea going into my ears The soft song of the water flowing in the river. Above on the headland* there is a blessed old cemetery The place in which saints lived in times long

This is a clever repackaging of some of the better recordings in Shanachie’s back catalog. Immigration is probably one of the overriding themes of Irish music, particularly for Irish in America. This album takes a look from both sides, with songs about coming to and being in America balanced by songs of longing by those who stayed behind. You can’t complain about a collection that includes Boys of the Lough, Karan Casey, De Dannan, Dolores Keane, Planxty, and Kathy Ryan, and… More >>
