The Battle of Tailtin Lyrics

2. The Battle of Tailtin (6:14)
Queen Eriu with the Men of Dea
Fought the Sons of the Gael,
Fais and Scota met their death,
Laid between valley and mountain.
The Sons of the Gael lost
Three hundred men,
But took with them
The lives of a thousand.

Eriu went back to Tailtin,
Aer and Eithis were buried,
The Gael journeyed to Inver Colpa!
A message of war was sent
To Cermaits Son's
To battle for Ireland's kingship
Once and for all,
They came with the best
Of Tuatha de Danann,
The Sons of the Gael remembered the death of Ith!
Great tides of battle crashed
Into the fray.
The Gaels had broke the Men of Dea,
Warrior's lay strewn
Among Tailtin's fields,
Food for the crows to dine and feast.

Sword and Spear
Battered Shields
Banners Blown
Across by the wind.
A fire fading on the hill.
A Battle standard remains.

Eriu, Fodhla and Banba perished
With three of their kings!
The Gael masters of Ireland forever!
The Tuatha fell into great disarray,
Followed still by the Gael.
The Men of Dea overthrown
Ireland belonged to the Gael.
Heber took Munster
And gave part to Amergin,
Heremon claimed Leinster
And Connacht.
Ulster was claimed
By Eimher at Emain Macha.

Sword and Spear
Nine hundred years
Banners blown
Across by the wind.
On the hills of Emain Macha
A Battle standard remains.

The Men of Dea were overthrown,
The Gael masters of Ireland forever.
