‘Tús Maith, Leath An hOibre’


Eamon De Valera campaigning on January 1, 1948


Now is the time for complacency
Let us take our shoulders from the wheel
The road ahead is easy
The distant sunlit uplands real

Tús maith, leath na hoibre

And we have started very well
So now relax each muscle fibre
Await the peal of Victory’s bell.

    The headline should read “leath na hoibre” (as in the body of the text). Obair is a feminine noun.
