It is a very popular Donegal song "Fil, Fil A Run O\", written in 1739. It
is the lament of a mother whose son
"changed his coat" during the Penal times...

Fil, fil a rún ó
fil a rún ó is ná himigh uaim
Fillorm a chuisle's a stór,
Agus chifidh tú 'n ghlóir má fhillean tú

Shúil mise thall is abhus
I móta ghrainn' óige do rudagh mé
'S ni fhaca aon iontas go fóill
Mar an sagart Ó Dónaill 'na mhinistir.

Fil, fil a rún ó
fil a rún ó is ná himigh uaim
Fillorm a chuisle's a stór,
Agus chifidh tú 'n ghlóir má fhillean tú.

Dhiúltaigh tú Peadar is Pól
Mar gheall ar an ór's ar an airgead;
Dhúiltaigh tú banrion na glóire
Agus d'iompaigh tú i gcóta 'n mhinistir.

Fil, Fil a rún ó,
fil a rún ó is ná himigh uaim
Má fhillean tú innui nó go deo
Fil insan ord 'nar oileadh tú.
