Attributed to the legendary poet Amairgen Glúngel (Aimhirgín), who is said to have recited it on first setting foot in Ireland, this poem evokes the spirit of a pre–Christian Celtic world in which gods, nature and the elements intermingle and find expression in the words of the ancient sage. Amairgen invokes his mystical powers over the land of Ériu(Ireland) and the natural elements, in effect becoming one with the forces of nature and acting as a unifying force between humans and the earth. His spell calms the fierce wind and angry sea, and his ancient words of wisdom restore peace to the land.
Rosc Aimheirgín (English translation by Máire NÍ Annracháin)
