Hi, ChrisE

This song is about the Easter Rebellion, also called the Easter Rising, which was the 1916 republican insurrection in Ireland against the British government there, which began on Easter Monday, April 24 in Dublin. I'll find a URL for you and post again in a minute.

Best wishes -- I love this song and sing it as often as I can!
