Aisling


95 years ago today - 24th April, 1916 - the generation of the vision set about realising their dream for us, the generation of freedom:
We Saw A Vision

In the darkness of despair we saw a vision,
We lit the light of hope,
And it was not extinguished,
In the desert of discouragement we saw a vision,
We planted the tree of valour, And it blossomed.

In the winter of bondage we saw a vision,
We melted the snow of lethargy,
And the river of resurrection flowed from it.
We sent our vision aswim like a swan on the river,
The vision became a reality,
Winter became summer,
Bondage became freedom,
And this we left to you as your inheritance.

O generation of freedom remember us,
The generation of the vision.
