I think I might have asked about this before, probably at the other place, but I'd just like have it checked again please. Is this correct?

Tadhg an Mhargaidh

Seo é Tadhg an Mhargaidh,
Rug sé Dé Luain,
Baisteadh Dé Mairt,
Pósta Dé Céadaoin,
Buaileadh tinn Déardaoin,
D'éirigh sé níos measa Dé hAoine,
Fuair sé bás Dé Sathairn,
Adhlacadh é Dé Domhnaigh.
Seo é an chríoch ar Tadhg an Mhargaidh.

Rug sé Dé Luain,

Rugadh Dé Luain é.

(rug sé = he brought, rugadh é = he was born)
Quote:
Baisteadh Dé Mairt,

... é

You could of course leave out all the "é"s and put an "a" in front:
a rugadh Dé Luain ("who was born on Monday)
a baisteadh Dé Mairt ...
But "Dé Mairt é" rhymes with "Mhargaidh".
Quote:
Pósta Dé Céadaoin,

Pósadh Dé Céadaoin é

(But you could use verbal adjectives instead of the saorbhriathar in all of the lines
beirthe Dé Luain,
baiste Dé Mairt,
pósta Dé Céadaoin, ...
)
Quote:
Buaileadh tinn Déardaoin,

... é
Quote:
D'éirigh sé níos measa Dé hAoine,
Fuair sé bás Dé Sathairn,

I'd use: Cailleadh Dé Sathairn é
(just for the sake of conformity with the rest)
Quote:
Adhlacadh é Dé Domhnaigh.

I'd put "é" at the end here as well.

This is the Munster version of Solomon Ó Grundaigh that I've been given - (for which I am very grateful, I might add)

Sin é Tadhg a' Mhargaidh
do rugadh Dé Luain
do baisteadh Dé Mairt
do pósadh Dé Céadaoin
do buaileadh breóite Déardaoin
gur hathiompaíodh air Dé hAoine
do cailleadh Dé Satharainn
's do hadhlacadh Dé Domhnaigh
Sin í an chrích a rug Tadhg a' Mhargaidh.

Nice version. Even for Friday they found a saorbhriathar version: (ath)iompíodh air = he got a relapse
