“Euroelections ’84” Some pages from a Fianna Fail Seminar on the 1984 European Elections January 29, 2015


Prior to the 1984 European Elections Fianna Fail had a number of Seminars for members on forthcoming European Elections. I’ve included the details of the seminar and some pages from the accompanying booklet. Included are messages from Charles Haughey, Gerry Collins and various details about Fianna Fail rules and the European Parliament.

From ‘This Week’ magazine April 1970 a profile of a pre Arms trial Charles Haughey. In an almost ‘Hello’ type interview and profile that feautures his family, his horses and much more. The question of the sale of house and lands in Raheny to builders is glossed over. Still worth a read.

“Arise and follow Charlie” -Fianna Fail 1981 General Election Song November 15, 2011


From the 1981 General Election the Fianna Fail anthem “Arise and follow Charlie” in praise of then leader Charlie Haughey.


From southern glens to Aston Shores
The ancient cry of freedom roars
From Northern hills to Leinster’s doors
We’ll rise and follow Charlie

With Charlie’s song we’ll sing as one
With Charlie’s song we’ll sing along
With Charlie’s song we’ll march along
We’ll Rise and Follow Charlie

Hail the leader, hail the man
With Freedom’s cause it all began
With Irish Pride in every man
We’ll Rise and Follow Charlie

With Charlie’s song we’ll sing as one
With Charlie’s song we’ll sing along
With Charlie’s song we’ll march along
We’ll Rise and Follow Charlie

Young and old we all approve
He’s kept the Country on the move
He’ll help the Nation to improve
So Rise and Follow Charlie

With Charlie’s song we’ll sing as one
With Charlie’s song we’ll sing along
With Charlie’s song we’ll march along
We’ll Rise and Follow Charlie
