    Default Irish National Anthem

    This is just the chorus, the bit that everyone knows


    Amhrán na bhFiann
    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 sire land,
    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

    Here's the full song in Irish

    Sinne Fianna Fáil,
    Atá Fá gheall ag Éirinn,
    Buidhean dár sluagh tar rúinn do ráinig chughainn
    Fámhoídh bheírh saor,
    Sean-tír ár sinnsear feasta
    Ní fágfar fá'n tíorán ná fa'n tráil;
    Anocht a theigeamh sa bhearna baoghail,
    Le gean ar Gaedhí chun báis nó saoghail,
    Le gunna sgréach: Fá lamhach na piléar.
    Seo Libh canaidh amhrán na bhFiann.

    Seo dhibh a cháirde duan oglaidh
    Caithréimeach, bríoghmhar, ceolmhar.
    Ár dteinte cnámh go buacach táid,
    `S an spéir go min réaltógach.
    Is fionmhar faobhrach sinn chun gleo
    'S go tiúnmhar glé roimh tigheacht do'n ló,
    Fa ciúnas chaoimh na h-oidhche ar seol,
    Seo libh, canaídh amhrán na bhFiann.

    Chorus

    Cois banta réidhe, ar árdaibh sléibhe.
    Ba bhuadhach ár rinnsear romhainn,
    Ag lámhach go tréan fá'n sár- bhrat séin
    Tá thuas sa ghaoith go seolta;
    Ba dhúthchas riamh d'ár gcine cháidh
    Gan iompáil riar ó imirt áir,
    'Siubhal mar iad i gcoinnibh rámhaid
    Seo libh, canaidh amhrán na bhFiann.

    Chorus

    A buidhean nach fann d'fuil Ghaoidheal is Gall
    Sinn breacadh lae na saoirse,
    Tá sgéimhle 's sgannradh í gcroidhthibh namhad,
    Roimh ranngaibh laochra ár dtíre;
    Ár dteinte is tréith gan spréach anois,
    Sin luinne ghlé san spéir anoir,
    'S an bíodhbha i raon na bpiléar agaibh:
    Seo libh, canaidh amhrán na bhFiann.

    and the English version

    Soldiers are we,
    whose lives are pledged to Ireland
    Some have come from a land beyond the wave,
    Some 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.

    We'll sing a song, a soldier's song
    With cheering, rousing chorus
    As round our blazing fires we thong,
    The starry heavens o'er us;
    Impatient for the coming fight,
    And as we wait the mornings light
    here in the silence of the night
    We'll sing a soldier's song

    CHORUS

    In valley green or towering crag
    Our fathers fought before us,
    And conquered 'neath the same old flag
    That's 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 sing a soldier's song

    CHORUS

    Sons of the Gael! Men of the Pale!
    The Long watched day is breaking;
    The serried ranks of Innisfail
    Shall set the tyrant quaking.
    Our camp fires now are burning low;
    See in the east a silvery glow,
    Out yonder waits the saxon foe,
    So sing a soldier's song.

    The song was written by Peadar Kearney an uncle of Brendan Behan in 1907, it was sung during the 1916 rising and
    was adopted as the National Anthem in 1926
    Blatant promotion should be outlawed
    but
    Vincent Browne is a Hero

    I learned it in both languages in the Scouts, but they taught me:

    "... atá faoi gheall IN Éirinn..."

    Gits.
