"Tir Nan Og" seems to originate from a French site, so perhaps the title has relevance in a dialect from the region. However, I suggest the title might truly be "Tir na nOg", an Irish language mythical place translating to "Country of the Young" or more generally "Land of Youth".

That aside, a pleasant treat. I agree its meaning is probably not overly sad. It seems quite upbeat to me even if the child's loved-ones leave her in the end; a sweet ending, as introduction says. And a good sound track, as a bonus.
