The fighting Irish are awakening

Fighting Irish

By John Fairclough

What need you being Teachtaí Dáil

But gang around with Fianna Fáil

With Labour And with Fine Gael

And all the while you spread the tale

“Recession’s over Dead and gone”

“And Irish Water is the one

To screw the workers even more”

With their iPhones and their protest marching

The fighting Irish are awakening

Across our nation, slowly rising

The people now are realising

That power in numbers can be harnessed

To make this Government keep its promise

Stand tall together Arm in arm

“A terrible beauty has been born!”
