Gaelic term or phrase: Mheall sí lena glórthaí mé
A Gaelic song title I cannot find in english anywhere.

English translation:SHE BEGUILED ME WITH HER CHARMS???
Explanation:
That's an educated guess bassed on what I remember of Irish gramnmar, checking the words (meall = beguile), (Glór=glory, here in plural), and having a look at the song words

In Irish_English

Beguiled me with her charms she did.

The song, very typical of Irish songs, goes along the lines of a young man who falls in love with a beautiful woman, everything's fine for a while, something happens, he spent long cold nights ruing his fate, and in the final verse wished he had her back.

NOT gospel!
