Please Help:

Is there anyone who can provide me with the phonetical English translation of the Irish National Anthem? I had it at one time but, have misplaced it and been searching for months. All I can remember is - Sheena feena faw a tau fway alegeireann bween dar shlew.....

As you can see, this is not too good - please, someone help!!!

Thanks so much for any help you can provide me.

Ginger

Sheena feena fall
Ataw fway yowal egg erin
Bween dar shlew
har tin do rawnig cuinn
Vay void veith sayor
Shan tear aaw-er sinsear fasta
Nee aahgfar fwayin tearawn naw fwayin trawl
Anocht a hayim sa vearna vaoil
Le geawn ar gaeil chun bais new sail
Le gunny screach fway lawvach na bpill air.........

Liam - I was so excited to get your message with the phonetic pronunciation for The Soldier's Song that I completely forgot to thank you. I can't tell you how thrilled I am to get this, finally. I've been trying for so long and couldn't believe my good luck! I belong to the LAOH here in CT and am the division historian. I've wanted to get this to pass it along to our members.

Again, A Hundred Thousand Thank Yous. Have a Very Happy Easter!

Ginger

Liam - any possibility that you may be able to supply me with the first verse...

We'll sing a song, a soldier's song
With cheering rousing chorus
As 'round the blazing fires we swarm
The starry heavens o'er us
Impatient for the coming fight
And as we wait the morning light
Here in the silence of the night
We'll chant a soldier's song...

also? I'd really apreciate it - thanks very much.

Ginger
