Poets and Patriots, Easter 1916
Peadar Kearney, 1883-1942 – Republican, Composer, Songwriter. The man who wrote ‘The Soldiers’ Song’
Peadar Kearney was born at 68 Lower Dorset street Dublin on December 12th 1883. He attended the Model School, Schoolhouse Lane and St Joesph’s Christian Brother’s School in Fairview. At the age of 14 he became an apprentice house painter.
Peadar Kearney joined the Gaelic League in 1901 and the playwright, Sean O’Casey, was a pupil in his Irish Class. He joined the Irish Republican Brotherhood in 1903. He was closely involved in the opening and running of the Abbey Theatre where he worked with props and had occasional walk-on roles. He returned to Ireland, from an Abbey Theatre British tour, to take part in the Rising.
In 1913 Peadar Kearney was a co-founder of the Irish Volunteers and the following year took part in the gun running at Howth and Kilcoole. He fought under the command of Thomas McDonagh at Jacob’s biscuit factory and escaped before the garrison was taken into custody. He fought in the War of Independence and was captured in November 1920 and interned at Colinstown Camp and Ballykinler Camp in Co. Down.
It was through his talent as a composer of Patrioctic songs that Peadar Kearney is remembered. His most famous work is ‘The Soldiers’ Song’ which, it has been told, was sung by the defenders of the G.P.O to raise their spirits during Easter Week 1916. The words of the song were written in English by Peadar in 1907. Patrick Heaney composed the music. In 1926, with Irish translation, ‘Amhrán na bhFiann’ replaced ‘God Save Ireland’ as the Irish National Anthem.
Among Peadar Kearney’s most famous songs are:
The Tri-coloured Ribbon
Down by the Liffey Side
Erin Go Bragh
Down by the Glenside (The Bold Fenian Men)
As the Fenian Movement was closely connected to soldiers and officers who had gained experience fighting in the American Civil War, we feel the link to this version of ‘The Bold Fenian Men’ is most appropriate. It is from the John Ford Movie ‘Rio Grande’ with John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara.

Oh and everybody take a moment and appreciate Nash jumping like a Kangaroo.
Pierre’s face in the last gif is just icing on this cake of hilarious awkwardness that is Zajac scissor kicking McDonagh into the bench by accident.
So it begins.

Gordon Ramsay is my favorite.
i just want to hug all of them
Fun story. I cooked for this dude, once. I did my kitchen apprenticeship at the family-style restaurant of one of New Zealand’s premiere chefs, and he knew Ramsay really well. He was in New Zealand for a few weeks, and Martin brought him by the restaurant to check it out. It was right on the beach, fucking gorgeous. I was the only one there (apprentice = bitch work = 4am starting shifts), and they asked me to whip up some breakfast for them. It was SUPER simple, fried fish, eggs cooked in bread, sausages. He was incredibly gracious and kind, asked me to join them (I couldn’t, too much work to do, so they sat at the kitchen window so they could talk to me), and was super interested in hearing about my english grandma, who had taught me how to cook. I won’t hear a single bad word against this man, for all of his kitchen hysterics, he treated me like an equal.gordon ramsay fandom
If you’re not in the Gordon Ramsay fandom you’re wrong.
