SOLDIER'S SONG, A (The National Anthem of the Republic of Ireland, originally written in English in 1907, first published in 1912) (Lyrics: Peadar Kearney / Music: Peadar Kearney & Patrick Heeney) We'll sing a song, a soldier's song With cheering rousing chorus As round our blazing fires we throng The starry heavens o'er us Impatient for the coming fight And as we wait the morning light Here in the silence of the night We'll chant a soldier's song Soldiers are we, whose lives are pledged to Ireland Some have come from a land beyond the wave Sworn to be free, no more our ancient sireland Shall shelter the despot or the slave Tonight we man the Bearna Baoghal In Erin's cause come woe or weal 'Mid cannon's roar and rifle's peal We'll chant a soldier's song In valley green, on towering crag Our fathers fought before us And conquered 'neath the same old flag That's proudly floating o'er us We're children of a fighting race That never yet has known disgrace And as we march, the foe to face We'll chant a soldier's song Soldiers are we, whose lives are pledged to Ireland Some have come from a land beyond the wave Sworn to be free, no more our ancient sireland Shall shelter the despot or the slave Tonight we man the Bearna Baoghal In Erin's cause come woe or weal 'Mid cannon's roar and rifle's peal We'll chant a soldier's song Sons of the Gael! Men of the Pale! The long wathed day is breaking The serried ranks of Inis Fáil Shall set the tyrant quacking Our campfires now are burning low See in the silv'ry glow Out yonder waits the Saxon foe So chant a soldiers song Soldiers are we, whose lives are pledged to Ireland Some have come from a land beyond the wave Sworn to be free, no more our ancient sireland Shall shelter the despot or the slave Tonight we man the Bearna Baoghal In Erin's cause come woe or weal 'Mid cannon's roar and rifle's peal We'll chant a soldier's song ******************** AMHRÁN NA BHFIANN (Irish Lyrics by Liam Ó Rinn, first published in 1923 and adopted as the Official National Anthem in 1926) Seo dhíbh, a chairde, duan Ógláigh Caithréimeach bríomhar ceolmhar Ár dtinte cnámh go buacach táid 'S an spéir go mín réaltógach Is fonnmhar faobhrach sinn chun gleo 'S go tiúnmhar glé roimh thíocht don ló Fé chiúnas chaomh na hoíche ar seol Seo libh, canaídh Amhrán na bhFiann Sinne Fianna Fáil, atá faoi gheall ag Éirinn Buíon dár slua thar toinn do ráinig chugainn Faoi mhóid bheith saor, Seantír ár sinsear feasta Ní fhágfar faoin tíorán ná faoin tráill Anocht a théam sa bhearna baoil Le gean ar Ghaeil, chun báis nó saoil Le gunna scréach faoi lámhach na bpiléar Seo libh canaídh amhrán na bhfiann Cois bánta réidhe, ar ardaibh sléibhe Ba bhuadhach ár sinsir romhainn Ag lámhach go tréan fén sárbhrat séin 'Tá thuas sa ghaoth go seolta Ba dhúchas riamh dár gcine cháidh Gan iompáil siar ó imirt áir 'S ag siúl mar iad i gcoinne námhad Seo libh, canaídh Amhrán na bhFiann Sinne Fianna Fáil, atá faoi gheall ag Éirinn Buíon dár slua thar toinn do ráinig chugainn Faoi mhóid bheith saor, Seantír ár sinsear feasta Ní fhágfar faoin tíorán ná faoin tráill Anocht a théam sa bhearna baoil Le gean ar Ghaeil, chun báis nó saoil Le gunna scréach faoi lámhach na bpiléar Seo libh canaídh amhrán na bhfiann A bhuíon nach fann d'fhuil Ghaeil is Gall Sin breacadh lae na saoirse Tá sceimhle 's scanradh i gcroíthe námhad Roimh ranna laochra ár dtíre Ár dtinte is tréith gan spréach anois Sin luisne ghlé sa spéir anoir 'S an bíobha i raon na bpiléar agaibh Seo libh, canaídh Amhrán na bhFiann Sinne Fianna Fáil, atá faoi gheall ag Éirinn Buíon dár slua thar toinn do ráinig chugainn Faoi mhóid bheith saor, Seantír ár sinsear feasta Ní fhágfar faoin tíorán ná faoin tráill Anocht a théam sa bhearna baoil Le gean ar Ghaeil, chun báis nó saoil Le gunna scréach faoi lámhach na bpiléar Seo libh canaídh amhrán na bhfiann (Contributed by Mel Priddle - March 2016)
