Britannia’s Huns with Their Long Range Guns

British troops moving near the Four Courts, Dublin, after the Rising, 1916.

Right proudly high over Dublin Town they hung out the flag of war
‘Twas better to die ‘neath an Irish sky than at Suvla or Sud El Bar
And from the plains of Royal Meath strong men came hurrying through
While Britannia’s Huns, with their long range guns sailed in through the foggy dew
