Amhrán an Lae – Dé Máirt

Seo é an dara amhrán i gcóir Seachtain na Gaeilge. Is é “Óró ‘Sé do Bheatha ‘Bhaile” an t-ainm atá ar an amhrán seo agus á sé á chanadh ag Paul Brady.

The name of the song translates as “Oh-ro You’re Welcome Home”. “Óró” is a cheer, while “sé do bheatha ‘bhaile” translates as “you are welcome home.” The song in its original form dates back to the third Jacobite rising in 1745-6. In the early 20th century it received new verses by the nationalist poet Patrick Pearse and was often sung by members of the Irish Volunteers during the Easter Rising. It was also sung as a fast march during the Irish War of Independence.
