Manannan Mac Lir by Jessika Stone (amerime on deviantart)

Manannan beg mac y Leirr, fer vannee yn Ellan
Bannee shin as nyn maatey, mie goll magh
As cheet stiagh ny share lesh bio as marroo ‘sy vaatey’.

Little Manannan, son of Lieirr, who blessed our land,
Bless us and our boat, well going out
And better coming in with living and dead in the boat.ย 

Prayer from a woman in 1910. Her and her father were said to have both used the prayer.
Collected by W.Y. Evans-Wentz.
