Beautiful Eireann

Lyrics

Though far, far away from my darling Tipperary
A thousand broad leagues of Atlantic between
In spirit I visit when cheery or weary
My motherland Eireann, the ocean’s own queen

Chorus
Beautiful Eireann, childhood’s sweet home
How fondly I love you thee wherever I roam
Suir’s lovely valley, clothed in green
The brightest in Eireann, the ocean’s own queen

Though rivers are deeper and mountains are taller
And vessels moreover full laden sail on
Far dearer to me is the Suir though it’s smaller
Far dearer the Comeraghs and sweet Sliabhnamon
Chorus

There’s one little town in the land I love dearest
I prize more than cities, the grandest on earth
For it has what they have not, a jewel the rarest
My loved mother’s cottage, the place of my birth
Chorus

And soon may our country again be a nation
Our sons will return from the lands far away
May the forefront of freedom again be her station
And maybe I’ll see it, that glorious day
Chorus
