What the Irish national anthem should be...

For my money the song featured below is the song that should be used as Ireland's national anthem - 'A Nation Once Again'. It beats the miserable anthem we have at the moment, whose lyrics most people don't seem to be able to sing.

There was an attempt in the early years of the Irish Free State to change the national anthem to A Nation Once Again from Amhran na bhFiann but the plans were put off as there was not enough support for the idea. Nothing wrong with giving it another try though right?

When a United Ireland occurs, which looks to be very soon in this century, I think this song would be the perfect choice for the new state. Below, the Wolfe Tones give their rendition of the song so you can make your own minds up...
