Gealt Mé – Patsy Cline cover

Posted on 26 Aug 2020

Gealt Mé – Patsy Cline cover as Gaeilge.

trans. Enda Reilly 2020

Gealt mé 

Gealt mar go bhfuilim comh uaigneach

Is gealt mé

Mar táim in ísle brí

Bhíos a’am go dtabharfá do chroí mar ba

 mhian leat

La breá thréigeadh tú mé le haghaidh

 duine nua

Imní Níl call ar bith le himní

Cad a tharla Táimse ag Smuaintiú 

Gealt mé mar shíl mé go gcoinneodh mo chion thú

Gealt mar gur thriall mé

Gealt mar gur chaoin mé 

Is gealt mé mar ghráigh mé thú

Gealt mé mar shíl mé go gcoinneodh mo chion thú

Gealt mar gur thriall mé

Gealt mar gur chaoin mé 

Is gealt mé mar ghráigh mé thú


In My Element at Pittsburgh Irish Festival Live Stream

Posted on 23 Aug 2020

I heard yesterday the sad news that Sir Ken Robinson has died. I was inspired by him to write my song “In My Element”. It seemed right to sing this one during the concert I had for Pittsburgh Irish Festival’s Facebook page.  Check out one of his talks here.  And here’s a recording on Bandcamp of In My Element from Bewley’s Cafe Theatre Ireland.


Story Through Song Workshop – South Dublin Libraries

Posted on 19 Aug 2020

My latest Songwriting Workshop was my first zoom workshop with a group and we had a very creative bunch of young songwriters who helped me write a fun song from scratch within 2 hours. No mean feat. They did a great job. The workshop was through South Dublin Libraries who are creating plenty of content on their facebook page to keep youngsters entertained.

Our song is called Magical Animals Magic

MAGICAL ANIMALS MAGIC

by Enda Reilly and participants of the Story Through Song Songwriting Workshop Aug 2020

in association with South Dublin Libraries

MAGICAL ANIMALS MAGIC

MAGICAL ANIMALS…

Oh the Pegasus was flying high

When the fox looked up to the sky

And the unicorn sang a song

And the song was very long

But all the animals sang along

I was feeling right at home,

Then I lost everyone I know.

But the zookeeper found a blob-fish,

Who had magic liqourice

He gave me my one wish

Sometimes humans are such a bore, 

And I find myself wanting something more.

Magic is where we all thrive

Makes us all feel alive

MAGICAL ANIMALS

MAGIC 

We are MAGICAL ANIMALS

MAGIC 

Just like Harry Potter magic

Like a Fire-bird born from the ashes

You can’t steal my magical powers

Cause Magic is all around us 

Sometimes humans are such a bore, 

And I find myself wanting something more.

Magic is where we all thrive

Makes us all feel alive

We are Magic is everywhere

Magic

MAGICAL ANIMALS

MAGIC 

Yes

Magic is everywhere

Magic

We are MAGICAL ANIMALS

MAGIC 

MAGICAL ANIMALS

MAGIC 

We are MAGICAL ANIMALS

MAGIC 


Keep a Trickle Flowin walk

Posted on 15 Aug 2020

Well I’m afraid I have to give today’s Live Stream a miss folks.

We are apartment hunting. But I have an Outside Jive for you of me singing Keep a Trickle Flowin. I was on an evening walk during the week and the fountain in the little park was
still trickling which inspired me to start singing. Watch out for the fire flies (The Sparks glowin!) and the deer I met before it got dark by the time I got home. Listen out for crickets and noisy Cicada.
