Original Lyrics in Irish

Sinne Fianna Fáil
Atá faoi gheall ag Éirinn,
Buíon dár slua
Thar toinn do ráinig chugainn,
Faoi mhóid bheith saor.
Sean tír ár sinsir feasta
Ní fhágfar faoin tíorán ná faoin tráill
Anocht a théam sa bhearna bhaoil,
Le gean ar Ghaeil chun báis nó saoil
Le gunna scréach faoi lámhach na bpiléar
Seo libh canaig’ Amhrán na bhFiann.

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 sireland
Shall shelter the despot or the slave.
Tonight we man the bearna bhaoil,
In Erin’s cause, come woe or weal;
‘Mid cannon’s roar and rifle’s peal,
We’ll chant a soldier’s song.
