Mikey joe Help: Literal translation of Amhran na bhFiann (26) RE: Help: Literal translation of Amhran na bhFiann 21 Jun 02


i doubt the reference is to any of the leaders mentioned as the song was written in 1907 (i think) which would predate the rising and the events leading up to it. I still don't think American Fenians although more credible IMHO is correct. It may simply be returning emmigrants who have money made in the States and are returning to suport "the cause"
