  • In honour of the Irish Navy

    The Clíona, the Meabh and the Mucha
    The pride of the Irish navy
    When the Captain he blows on his whistle
    All the sailors go home for their tea

    While the army is off in the Congo
    In Cyprus or some foreign parts
    Our navy is strained to the limits
    Deploying its nautical acts
    One day from the Russian invader
    Defending our very odd fish
    We found it was just the red herring
    From the signals we got from the cis'

    The Clíona, the Meabh and the Mucha
    The pride of the Irish navy
    When the Captain he blows on his whistle
    All the sailors go home for their tea

    Each year they go on manoeuvres
    To prepare for defence they are keen
    Sometimes it's the Lakes of Killarney
    More often the pond in the Green
    The canal it could be of assistance
    In defending our own holy ground
    But due to proposed legislation
    We'll have to sail all the way round

    The Clíona, the Meabh and the Mucha
    The pride of the Irish navy
    When the Captain he blows on his whistle
    All the sailors go home for their tea

    We are a seafaring nation
    Defence of our land is a right
    We'd fight like the devil all morning
    Provided we're home by the night

    The Clíona, the Meabh and the Mucha
    The pride of the Irish navy
    When the Captain he blows on his whistle
    All the sailors go home for their tea






    Keep up the good work!

        ah get of your high horses and have a giggle just like the dubliners did when they wrote the damn song

        this may stimulate some discussion and memories of these ships and the period of service

        but sure that wouldnt occur to you two smart alecs

            It wouldnt occur to anyone reading your post.

            Someone needs a little anger managment.

                Irrelevant shite. Welcome to 1967. You'll meet the rest of us here in the 21st century.

                  We could pen a song too

                  Written by one of the lads circa 1970, to the air of Garryowen

                  We sailed Corvettes for twenty years
                  We stood the publics jokes and jeers
                  We disregard their laughs and sneers
                  For we are the Irish Navy

                  But now we sail a smaller ship
                  and soon one poacher made a slip
                  it was the Fola on a trip
                  On patrol for the Irish Navy

                  This rocky coast we sail around
                  from Malin to the Blasket sound
                  where ere the poacher may be found
                  There you'll find the Irish Navy

                  So come all you men like Ronnie Drew (R.I.P.)
                  we're doing a job you could'nt do
                  and if you sailed on 02
                  you would'nt slag the Irish Navy

                    There was also a song penned in honour to L.E. Grainne that was featured in a news letter by the crew in 1986

                    the song was to the tyne of Lisdoonvarna by Christy Moore.

                    I wonder does anybody have the lyrics to this?
