Wolfe Tones – Joe McDonnell

Here’s another chance to hear one of the most popular songs in the Irish Republican repertoire. Joe McDonnell was one of the ten hunger strikers who gave their lives for Irish freedom in 1981.

Rebel Voice

This song is about one of the 10 Irish martyrs who died on hunger strike in 1981, fighting colonial rule and oppression. The lyrics tell a very emotive story and will be found to be relevant to those who fight injustice across the globe.
