It is. Seán, not Péadar. The lyrics, though, are from the 18th century.

I'm 4+ minutes in. How long do I have to listen to get to a lyric?

Edited: OK, now it's over. What did you mean lyrics?

Oh, I see what you mean. I mentioned the lyrics - a poem, actually - in the abstract, in this case, not in reference to the video itself. There's an example of imprecision for you. There are no lyrics sung in the vid, as you point out, and the tune is often played thusly, as an air. But Ó Ríada originally composed the tune for the poem so that it could be sung, and it was because of that that I referred to the composition as an intended whole without taking the vid proper into account.
