Na Fíníní Tréana
(Fonn: “Fir an Iarthair”)

Is iomdha amhrán maith I mBéarla
‘Na moltar ár laochra thar bárr:
Is iomdha scéal canta do léightear
Thar gaisge ár dtréan-fhear san ár.
Ach canfad dídh feasta, a Ghaedheala,
I dteangan na hÉireann mo dhán,
Ag moladh na Fíníní tréana,
Do bhain geit as na méith-phuic ‘na lá.

Mo ghrád iad na Fíníní Tréana,
Mo ghrád iad do dtéidhead-sa fé’n mbán;
Ó leanaimís Lorg na Laochra
A mhuinntir na hÉireann, gan scáth.

Is Tréith lag bhí muinntir na hÉireann
Fé dhaor-smacht as dlighthe ba cham
Nuair bheartaigh na Fíníní tréin-bheart
Do dhéanamh ag treascairt na nGall;
A’s is iomdha glean seasgair sa tír seo
As leaca, as ínse ghlas réidh
Na mbailighdír riúd ann ist oidhche,
Chun cath-cleasa chleachta mar chéird.

Go mairidh go bráth again eolas
Ar na ballaidh ‘na chnósuigheadh na Gaedhil,
San am úd ag foghluim a ngnótha,
Conus namhaid do threascairt le faobhar.
Mar má’s laugh é an smacht tá ar Ghaedhealaidh
Le ‘nás linn, seach a’s bhí ortha tráth,
Do na daoine bhí ullamh chun faobhar-chath
Tugtar an buidheachas go bráth.

Molaim go h-Árd na Fíníní
Do dhúisigh ár ndaoine ba thláth,
A’s do mhúin dóibh gur laochra a sinnsear
Ná luighfeadh fé chosaibh aon námhaidh.
A’s deirim gur suarach an Gaedheal é
Ná canfadh liom bhéarsa ó chroidhe,
Ag moladh na bhFíníní shaothruigh
Le duthracht, moch déidheanach, dár dtír.

A’s má theip ar na Fíníní Éire
Ó Ghalla-smacht shaoradh ‘na ló,
Do theip agus teipfidh, a Ghaedheala,
Ar na Gallaibh sinn chlaonadh go deo.
Agus maireann a’s mairfidh go bráth ann,
Tré congnamh an Áird-Mhic, fir groidhe,
Chun a dtíre do chosaint go dána
Ar an námaid pé áird as a dtighean.

Wondering if anyone might know what the equivalant of this song is in English. The title roughly translates as 'The Strong Fenians' but can't seem to find a song with a similar heading in English.

Can't imagine why there would be an "English" version of it.

"The Bold Fenian Men", presumably.

Why not? Loads of Irish rebel songs are in English.

Apologies - the heading gives the air as "The Men of the West", a well known tune. It's not a translation.

I have heard it sung, occasionally, in recent years.

Regards

re there being an English language version, this seems unlikely as the first verse says that there are songs in English praising our heroes but I'll sing the praises of the Fenians in the language of Ireland.
