Could someone please translate this salutation from Paul Brady to the deceased author of "The Homes of Donegal", as found on Paul's website. Thanks

"May God have mercy on your soul, Seán!"

An peacach nótáilte a bhí ann? An iomarca ceol, ól agus mar sin de? ;-)

Thanks Dennis - very much. I'm afraid you've lost me there with the rest of it though - I get the sense you are asking questions possibly about Paul's site - was it some kinda notes or something - if this is it - go to his site simply paulbrady.com and go to the Homes of Donegal song - you'll find it easy enough and click for the liner notes. They are great. I never knew where that song was from either - but fair play to Paul - he certainly covers it well.
Thanks again for the translation.
I'm at irishbouzouki.com if you want to follow up on anything along those lines.

Hang on!
Would'nt it translate somewhat literally as:
"May God make grace out of your soul" ?
Taking the old Celtic Way of looking at cosmology this would probably compute.
It's amazing the difference in meaning or implication the slight twist makes here.
