IRELAND'S CALL

(Phil Coulter)

 

Come the day and come the hour
Come the power and the glory
We have come to answer
Our Country's call
From the four proud provinces of Ireland

Ireland, Ireland
Together standing tall
Shoulder to shoulder
We'll answer Ireland's call

From the mighty Glens of Antrim
From the rugged hills of Galway
From the walls of Limerick
And Dublin Bay
From the four proud provinces of Ireland

Ireland, Ireland
Together standing tall
Shoulder to shoulder
We'll answer Ireland's call

Hearts of steel
And heads unbowing
Vowing never to be broken
We will fight, until
We can fight no more
From the four proud provinces of Ireland

Ireland, Ireland
Together standing tall
Shoulder to shoulder
We'll answer Ireland's call

 

With the Ireland rugby team representing both the Republic and Northern Ireland, "Ireland's Call"
was scripted to help cross sectarian and national divides and adopted as the rugby anthem in 1995.
However, at home matches in Dublin the Irish national anthem, the Soldier's Song, is also sung.
