Amhrán na bhFiann (the soldiers' song) is the national anthem of IRELAND. It was composed by Peadar Kearny and Patrick Heeney in 1907 and was adopted as the hymn of Irish Free State.
AMHRÁN NA bhFIANN (Irish)
Sinne Fianna Fáil, atá faoi gheall ag Éirinn, Buíon dár slua thar toinn do ráinig chughainn, 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 canaig amhrán na bhFiann.
THE 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 baoil", In Erin's cause, come woe or weal, 'Mid cannon's roar and rifles' peal, We'll chant a soldier's song
