IRELAND OVER ALL

 Eamon Kent 

  executed May 1916


Ireland, Ireland 'fore the wide world,
 Ireland, Ireland over all!
 When we fight we'll fight for Ireland,
 Answer only Ireland's call;
 Plain and mountain, rock and valley,
From the Shannon to the sea.
 Ireland, Ireland 'fore the wide world,
Ireland one and Ireland free!

Ireland's land and Ireland's Nation,
Ireland's faith and hope and song,
 Irishmen will yet redeem them
rom the foreign tyrant throng;
 Ireland's homes and Ireland's hillsides
 Shall be freed from slavery;
Ireland, Ireland, 'fore the wide world,
Ireland one and Ireland free!

Unity and right and freedom
For our Irish Fatherland,
 Strive we all we may secure them,
Strive we all with heart and hand!
 Be our aim then, God defending,
Right, eternal liberty!
 Ireland, Ireland 'fore the wide world,
Ireland one and Ireland free!
