About the Song
What does "na hóro eile" mean? At a pinch the words could be rendered roughly into English, but that would be misleading: they don't really mean anything, though they may sound as if they do. Like most other European singing traditions, Gaelic uses "nonsense words" or vocables to bulk out refrains.
Some have said it means, "and no one else." Others described it as the Yeah, yeah bit of "She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah"!!
O MY BOATMAN
Oh my boatman, na hóro eile
My farewell to you wherever you go
