Tune of the Day: Óró Sé do Bheatha 'Bhaile
This Irish folk song came to be known as an Irish rebel song in the early 20th century. In its original form, known as “Séarlas Óg” (meaning “Young Charles” in Irish), the song refers to Bonnie Prince Charlie and dates back to the third Jacobite rising of 1745.
The song has been sung widely by ballad groups such as The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, The Dubliners, The Cassidys and the Wolfe Tones. There is also a classical orchestral version by the Irish Tenors.
