Read the Roll of Honour
For Ireland´s bravest men
We must be united
In memory of the ten
England you´re a monster
Don´t think that you have won
We will never be defeated
While Ireland has such sons

In those dreary H- Block cages
Ten brave young Irishmen lay
Hungering for justice
When their young lives paved away
For their rights as Irish soldiers
And to free their native land
They stood beside their leader
The gallant Bobby Sands

Now they mourn Hughes in Bellaghy
Ray McCreesh in Armagh´s hills
In those narrow streets of Derry
They miss O´Hara still
They so proudly gave their young lives
To break Brittania´s hold
Their names shall be remembered
As history unfold.
