A hauntingly beautiful Irish ballad that refers back to the Irish rebellion of 1798. The lyrics refer to the outbreak of the 1798 rebellion in county Kildare as United Irish rebels called the order to rise. The air of hope and optimism associated with the ultimately doomed rebellion was intended to provide inspiration for rebels. The song is also referenced in the final line of the final entry of Bobby Sands hunger strike diary.
