The Boys of Kilmichael

Amhrán atá ana-choitianta ar fud na tíre agus atá cloiste ag gach éinne i Múscraí uair amháin ar a laghad! Thaifid daoine iomráiteacha ar nós na Wolfe Tones agus Brendan Behan an t-amhrán, chomh maith le Seán Ó Sé agus Ceoltóirí Chualann. Tá Cill Mhichíl féin idir Mhúscraí agus Cairbre.

Whilst we honor in song and in story
The memory of Pearse and McBride
Whose names are illumined in glory
With martyrs who long since have died
Forget not the boys of Kilmichael
Those brave men so gallant and true
They fought under bold Tommy Barry
And conquered the red, white and blue

Chorus
Then here’s to the boys of Kilmichael
Those brave men so gallant and true
They fought ‘neath the green flag of Erin
And conquered the red, white and blue

On the twenty eigth day of November
The tans left the town of Macroom
They were armed in two crossley tenders
Which led them right into their doom
They were out on the road to Kilmichael
And they never expected to stall
But they met with the boys of the column
Who made a clean sweep of the lot.

Chorus

Then over the hills went the echo
The peal of the rifle and gun
The flames from the lorries gave tidings
The boys from Kilmichael had won
So here’s to the boys of Kilmichael
Those brave lads so gallant and true
Who fought ‘neath the green flag of Erin
And conquered the red, white and blue

Chorus

The sun in the West it was sinking
Twas the eve of a cold winters day,
When the Tans who were eerily waiting
Sailed into the spot where we lay
Then over the hills went the echo
The peal of the rifle and gun
And the flames from the lorries gave tidings
That the boys from the column had won

Chorus

The lorries were out before twilight
And high over Dunmaway Town
Our banners in triumph were waving
To show that the Tans had gone down
We gathered our rifles and bayonets
And soon left that glen so obscure,
And we never did drink till we halted
At the far away camp of Granure.
