The Irish National Anthem


The chorus of “Amhr�n na bhFiann” or in English, “A Soldier’s Song”, (pron: ow-rawn nuh bee-yunn) is the national anthem of the Republic of Ireland. The lyrics were written by Peadar Kearney and, together with Patrick Heeny, set it to music.
The song was first published in Irish Freedom in 1912 and quickly became the most popular of the Irish Volunteer’s marching songs. In 1926 Amhr�n na bhFiann The Soldier’s Song was adopted as the National Anthem of Ireland, replacing the unofficial British Anthem.
