Brian Boru

brian boru is an old march composed by O'Carolan the blind Harpist, something around the 16th or 17 century, its about Brian Boru the last High King of Ireland, killed at the battle of Clontarf 1014, when Ireland defeated the Vikings and cleared the country of invading barbarians until the brits came a few hundred years later.

Maraiodh Brian Boru chun beatha na heireann
Siochain in gcuige Uladh agus i mbaile 'cliath
Aontacht an teaghlaigh, aontacht na dtuath
Aontacht an domhain is na gCeiltteach
