Correcting the grammar gives me:

"Bean sléibhe ag caoineadh a mic"

A search on google leads me to:

http://www.damhsoir.ie/Assets/factsaboutrosmuc.htm

which sates that Pádraig Mac Piarais wrote it:

Rugadh Pádraig Mac Piarais i mBaile Átha Cliath sa bhliain 1879. Múinteoir scoile a bhí ann. Scríobh sé go leor gearrscéalta, m.sh., Íosagán, An Deargadaol, Na Bóithre, agus An Mháthair. Scríobh sé dánta chomh maith, m.sh., Bean Sléibhe ag Caoineadh a Mic, Fornocht a Chonac Tú agus Óró Sé do Bheatha Abhaile.
