beachcomber Help: Literal translation of Amhran na bhFiann (26) RE: Help: Literal translation of Amhran na bhFiann 14 Jun 02

I can offer:-

We are soldiers of destiny, who are under obligation to Ireland.
Some of our army came to us from over the waves, under promise to make free the ancient land of our forefathers, forever.
To-night we go to the Barna Bwaol , (phonetically rendered placename famed in old legends) with indifference on the Gaels as to whether we receive death or life, with guns screaming, under the path of the bullets...
Here we are singing the song of the soldiers.

Hope this is some help, in case some of my more academic compatriots are all too busy commenting on the World Cup.
