My emerald home

Rugged northern landscape
southern sandy beaches,
the wonders of nature
is one thing it teaches

Born from adversity
rebellion,famine,opression
lessons learned from history
have lead to progression

Steeped in culture
poetry,song and dance,
the forefathers stories
of deep romance

So friendly the people
as we go through our day,
a "cead mile failte"
to enjoy your stay

Tasting the black stuff
the craic agus ceoil
the songs and the stories
to lighten the soul

But economy's hand
forces many to flee
to lands of opportunity
a bhristeach mo chroi

Despite the faults
of present and past
my love for my home
forever will last.
