I wonder if someone can help me?

Many traditional Irish songs contain the words 'rover', 'rove', or 'roving'. However, I have failed to find a direct satisfactory translation into Irish Gaelic. In your educated opinion, what would be the closest translation of 'The Irish Rover' into Irish Gaelic?

Thanks!
chrubble :D

I wonder why no one answers.
I am not the best to do so because my English is too weak.
For me, in the first line, "Rover" is the name of a British car which unfortunately doesn’t exist anymore. :)

But nonetheless, I’d say fánaí might be a good choice in Irish. But there are a lot of other words.
