That's an added interpretation of line 21, isn't it, with the
implied "new"?  It reminds me of a verse from a suantraí --
but a not an old one.  This one was written late in the last
century by Aodh Ó Domhnaill of Rann na Feirste.

Gabháil siar Baile an Mhuilinn domh
B'anásta m'ualach:
Beirt ar mo mhuin
Agus triúr ar mo ghualainn.

As I was going west to B an Mh
My burden was awkward:
Two [children] on my back
and three on my shoulder.
