Description

Mise Éire (I am Ireland) is an Irish language poem written by the scholar and republican leader Patrick Pearce. Pádraig Mac Piarais, as he was known in Irish, was later executed for his role as one of the leaders of the 1916 Rising. The poem depicts Ireland as the Old Woman of Beare, proud and glorious, but in a sorry state.

 

 

 

Translation

I am Ireland 

I am older than the Old Woman of Beare 

Great my glory 

I who bore Cuchulainn the valiant 

Great my shame 

My own children who sold their mother. 

I am Ireland 

I am lonelier than the Old Woman of Beare
