Tá údar gaisce ag muintir na Trá Báine as méid agus feabhas na filíochta a cumadh san áit. Seo dúinn Amhrán na mBolamán le Mary Mháire Sheáinín Uí Chonghaile. Is amhrán barrúil atá ann faoi ócáid nuair a tháinig an t-uafás bolamán i dtír ar an mbaile. Ar ndóigh, is é an míniú a fuair Mary ar an eachtra neamhghnách seo ná go raibh dea-cháil na Trá Báine á scaipeadh ar fud an domhain, fiú i measc na n-iasc, agus fonn orthu dá réir an baile cáiliúil a fheiceáil iad féin. Tá an t-amhrán á chasadh anseo as Siobhán Uí Fhlatharta nó Baby Trayers mar ab fhearr aithne uirthi, ar dheis Dé go raibh sí!

The community in an Trá Bháin can rightly be proud of the amount and indeed the quality of the poetry that has been composed in that region. This is Amhrán na mBolamán by Mary Mháire Sheáinín Uí Chonghaile. It is a humorous song written on the occasion that a great shoal of horse mackerel came ashore in the area. Of course Mary took this unusual event as proof that An Trá Bháin was well known around the world, even indeed among the fish and that they wanted to visit an see this famous place for themselves. The song is sung by Siobhán Uí Fhlatharta or Baby Trayers as she was better known.
