This beautiful collection of song lyrics tells of a time of hard struggle for Ireland, the struggle for freedom and independence. It tells of the heroic efforts of a people and a nation to break free from tyranny and subservience. As such, it is a universal and timeless tribute for all fights against oppression and captivity.

The War of Independence in Ireland lasted for nearly three years from 1919 to 1921. It resulted in a Ceasefire Anglo-Irish Treaty, and the Irish Civil War.

EDITION POINTS: First Edition.
