Mna ha h-eireann (Women of Ireland)

"Mná na hÉireann" (English: Women of Ireland), is a poem written by Ulster poet Peadar Ó Doirnín (1704–1796), popularly set in song to the tune by Seán Ó Riada (1931–1971). Mná na hÉireann is usually placed in the category of Irish rebel music. It honours the memory of the women dedicated to Ireland, specifically the Irish nationalist movement.
