I would be very grateful to you if you could translate this song for me.

Dulaman na Binne Bui

A'nion mhin o! Sin anall na fir shuiri.
A myhathair mhin o! Cuir mo roithlean go dti me!

Dulaman na Binne Bui
Dalaman Gaelach.

Ta ceann bui oir ar a'dulaman Gaelach.
Ta cha chluais mhaol' ar a' dulaman Maorach.

Rachaidh me chun 'luir leis a' dulaman Gaelach.
Ceannod broga daer', arsa' dulaman Gaelach.

Ta broga breatha dubha ar a' dulaman Gaelach.
Bairead agus trius ar a' dulaman Gaelach.

O, chuir me sceala chuici go gceannoinn cior di,
'Se 'n sceala 'chuir si chugam go raibh aici ceann ciortha.

Goide Cad e 'rug thuas' 'na tir' seo? 'rsan dulaman Maorach.
Ag suiri le do 'nion! arsan dulaman Gaelach.

Chan fhaigheann Ni bhfaighidh tu mo 'nion, arsan dulaman Gaelach.
Mar fuado' me liom i arsan dulaman Maorach.

Dulaman na binne bui dulaman a' tsleibhe,
Dulaman na farraige is dulaman a' deididh.

This is a children's song - my Irish isn't nearly good enough to translate the lyrics, but the band "Altan" does a very good version (and, I think, has a translation) on their album "Island Angel".

The chorus - "Dulaman na binne bui, dulaman gaelach" - is "Seaweed from the yellow cliff, Irish seaweed," if memory serves.
