Reminds of the saw doctors song, "Share The Darkness". It contains the lyrics "Tá an dorchadas ag teacht inniu, tar abhaile liom mo ghrá".

Does this mean "It is getting dark"?

Not necessarily - it's certainly not how you would normally say "it's getting dark" - "tá sé ag éirí dorcha".

But just as in English, it could be a much more threatening statement, (everybody hide, the darkness is coming!) or it could just be a more prosaic "it's after 8PM, so the darkness is coming", though that sounds a bit weird.
