    Cool tune.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sitNEVednCs"]YouTube- The Wolfe Tones Rock On Rockall[/ame]

    Words and Music : B.Warfield

    Oh the Empire it is finished

    No foreign lands to seize

    So the greedy eye of England

    I stirring towards the seas

    Two hundred miles from Donegal

    There's a place that's called Rockall

    And the groping hands of Whitehall

    Are grabbing at it's walls.



    Chorus:

    Oh rock on Rockall you'll never fall

    For Britains greedy hands

    Oh you'll meet the same resistance

    Like you did in many lands

    May the Seagulls rise and pluck your eyes

    And the water crush your shell

    And the natural gas will burn your ass

    And blow you all to hell



    This rock is part of Ireland

    For it's written in folklore

    When Finn McCool took a sod of grass

    He threw it to the fore

    When he tossed a pebble across the sea

    Where ever did it fall

    For the sod became the Isle of Man

    Now the pebble's called Rockall



    Chorus...



    Oh the seas will not be silent

    While Britannia grabs the waves

    And remember that the Irish

    Will no longer be your slaves

    And remember that Britannia well

    She rules the waves no more

    So keep your hands off Rockall

    It's Irish to the core.



    Chorus...

    Denmark said today it had supplied evidence to a UN body to support its ownership claim, through its Faroe Islands territory, of the disputed and resource-rich Rockall zone in the North Atlantic. The continental shelf of the Rockall zone, south of the Faroe Islands, is said to be rich in oil and gas.

    RTE News

    Britain and Ireland submitted their scientific proofs for ownership claims in March 2009, Denmark said, while Iceland has yet to present any data.

    Default UN to Examine Rockall 'Ownership'

    It seems like Rockall is back on the Agenda and it is beyond me how anyone can dispute Irish ownership of Rockall:-

    The United Nations is likely to examine claims to the ownership of the remote islet of Rockall within weeks after Denmark made a submission, it has been reported.

    Ownership of the uninhabited outcrop in the Atlantic has long been disputed by Britain, Ireland, Denmark and the Faroe Islands and Iceland.

    Denmark and the Faroe Islands made a submission to the UN Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS) early in December.

    A statement on the UN website says that it will be considered at the commission's meeting in New York in March.

    I suppose I had better stake my claim asap.

    We talked about this history of the Rockall claims here -

    There's a link to the Irish Marine Institute's recent sea-bed mapping of the Rockall sea bed here -

    Indymedia Update on Rockall

    According to a recent Guardian article, gombeen Irish politicians from Fiannna Fail, Fine Gael & Labour have secretly agreed a common marine border, in which the Irish island of Rockall, has been ceeded to the British by these ******* Irish politicians. British occupation of the Irish island of Rockall an Irish outcrop jutting out on a vast lucrative oilfield west of Ireland, which is to be examined within weeks by the UN, means that Ireland will loose trillions of badly needed tax dollars

    Here's a classic.
    Thus all which you call Sin, Destruction—in brief, Evil—that is my true element.
