Spotlight : Amhrán na bhFiann


Our National Anthem Amhrán na bhFiann or ‘The Soldier's Song’ was sung at the GPO during the Easter Rising of 1916 . The words were written by Peadar Kearney in 1910 and the music composed by Patrick Heeney .It was translated into irish by Liam Ring in late 1916 and published in the Army magazine An tÓglach in 1923 . In 1926, the executive council of the Irish Free State adopted the music as the official national anthem.The three men responsible for the national anthem, Peadar Kearney, Patrick Heeney and Liam Ring (Ó Rinn), were from Dublin’s north inner city and lived within 200 yards of each other.
 
 

Amhrán na bhFiann (the soldiers song) 
 
Sinne Fianna Fáil, atá faoi gheall ag Éirinn,
[Soldiers are we, whose lives are pledged to Ireland]
 
Buíon dár slua , thar toinn do ráinig chugainn,
[Some have come, from a land beyond the wave]
 
Faoi mhóid bheith saor, Seantír ár sinsear feasta,
[Sworn to be free, no more our ancient sireland]
 
Ní fhágfar faoin tíorán ná faoin tráill.
[Shall shelter the despot or the slave]
 
Anocht a théam sa bhearna bhaoil,
[Tonight we man the ‘bearna bhaoil’]
 
Le gean ar Ghaeil, chun báis nó saoil,
[In Erin's cause, come woe or weal]
 
Le gunna-scréach, faoi lámhach na bpiléar,
['Mid cannons' roar and rifles peal]
 
Seo libh canaig, amhrán na bhFiann.
[We'll chant a soldier's song]

A NATION ONCE AGAIN,EASTER,MONDAY,OCTAVE.The PATRIOTS
OF 1916 RISING.It is no coincidence that the 1st day of 40,after which Christ left
Earth and Ascended To Heaven was chosen by these brave and 
enlightened heroes,they were extremely clever also.ROME,pagan then,
with the assistance of the Jews,crucified Jesus a Jew during their Passover.By RISING,JESUS proved he was the Son Of God,thus the
BEGINNING OF THE END OF ROME,and the exposure of the Jews.
THIS IS RELEVANT TODAY,EASTER MONDAY, IRELAND 2020.
In 1172,the Pope of Rome,gave HENRY 2nd the BLESSING TO INVADE
IRELAND,A CHRISTIAN COUNTRY SINCE the 5th century by OUR OWN ST. PATRICK.This was repeated again over 800 years by ROME
AND ROYALS,i.e. PETERS PENCE AND THE PENAL LAWS.Rome was
Only identified as Catholic after 10th centuary.Despite Romes fallout with
Henry Vlll, who then created Church of England, Protestant, ROME
CONTINUED TO DEAL IN THIS ARRANGEMENT FOR THEIR MUTUAL
BENIFITS, ALLOWING THEIR INFLUENCES TO ESTABLISH ROME
OVER CHRISTIAN BELIEFS....IT IS ALL DOCUMENTED,IN HISTORY !
ST.PATRICK,used SHAMROCK,to explain THE HOLY TRINITY, THE
1916 PROCLAMATION REFERS TO GOD,THE BOOK OF KELLS,THE
PSALTER BOOKS BOTH IRISH AND SCOT CELTIC,written in Irish script.There are many more examples in history,script and relics. I truly
believe that We Are Chosen by God,that We defenders of God should
REBUILD OUR NATION AND GODS CHURCH,OUR ANCESTORS
GOT IT RIGHT,THEY KNEW THE SIGNIFICANCE OF GOD,because
without God,you cannot rebuild,defend,fight or win.FAITH IN OUR FATE 
With respect to Our Patriots,Our Ancestors,1916 Proclamation and
Wolf Tones,Sean Oriada and Thomas Davit 1840 Young Irelander.
