Amhra/n na bhFiann







Seo dhibh a cháirde duan Óglaigh,


Cathréimeach briomhar ceolmhar,


Ár dtinte cnámh go buacach táid,


'S an spéir go min réaltogach


Is fonnmhar faobhrach sinn chun gleo


'S go tiú nmhar glé roimh thíocht do'n ló


Fé chiú nas chaomh na hoiche ar seol:


Seo libh canaídh Amhrán na bhFiann.



Curfá:



Sinne Fianna Fáil


A tá fé gheall ag Éirinn,


buion dár slua


Thar toinn do ráinig chugainn,


Fé mhóid bheith saor.


Sean tír ár sinsir feasta


Ní fhagfar fé'n tiorán ná fé'n tráil


Anocht a théam sa bhearna bhaoil,


Le gean ar Ghaeil chun báis nó saoil


Le guna screach fé lámhach na bpiléar


Seo libh canaídh Amhrán na bhFiann.



Cois bánta réidhe, ar árdaibh

sléibhe,


Ba bhuachach ár sinsir romhainn,


Ag lámhach go tréan fé'n sár-bhrat séin


Tá thuas sa ghaoith go seolta


Ba dhú chas riamh d'ár gcine cháidh


Gan iompáil siar ó imirt áir,


'S ag siú l mar iad i gcoinne námhad


Seo libh, canaídh Amhrán na bhFiann.



Curfá



A bhuíon nách fann d'fhuil

Ghaeil is Gall,


Sin breacadh lae na saoirse,


Ta scéimhle 's scanradh i gcroíthe namhad,


Roimh ranna laochra ár dtire.


Ár dtinte is tréith gan spréach anois,


Sin luisne ghlé san spéir anoir,


'S an bíobha i raon na bpiléar agaibh:


Seo libh, canaídh Amhrán na bhFiann.

Anthem Lyrics English

Soldier's Song





We'll sing 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's light,


Here in the silence of the night,


We'll chant a soldier's song.





Chorus:


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 gap of danger


In Erin's cause, come woe or weal


'Mid cannons' roar and rifles 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





Chorus





Sons of the Gael! Men of the Pale!


The long watched day is breaking;


The serried ranks of Inisfail


Shall set the Tyrant quaking.


Our camp fires now are burning low;


See in the east a silv'ry glow,


Out yonder waits the Saxon foe,


So chant a soldier's song.





Chorus
