Chumbawamba – Hurling & Imperialism lyrics

Hurling, the national sport of ireland
Was banned in 1366
As part of an anglo-norman attempt
To crush all gaelic resistance
It failed
Over six hundred years of british repression
Has never stopped the people from fighting back
They still play hurling and as youd expect
The brits still defend as the irish attack
