Epigraph:

Ile triste, un pâtre te chante sur tes collines brumeuses.

"Autrefois tes fils buvaient, riaient, dansaient, en heurtant les coupes de fer et les haches, dans la bonne humeur furieuse des festins.
"Le deuil est venu, avec l'esclavage. Tordez vos bras, pleureuses ! puisque la patrie n'est plus.
"Mais le cor sonne ! Écoutez, voyez ! Les rocs s'écroulent, et, de la terre entr'ouverte, jaillit une armée de cavaliers géants.
"Ils viennent ! Les voici !
"Chante, ô peuple misérable, ton vieux chant triomphal : car les héros de l'antique Irlande sortent des tombeaux séculaires pour la délivrance de leurs enfants."

March 1882 performance reviewed @ Les Annales du Theatre et de la musique (article starting p.525.) Evidence of composition date absent, and some sources claim 1880 publication date for piano reduction (though this is probably "ca.1880" where 1882 is more accurate in fact.)

Performed in Boston January 5 1904 (G. Longy conducting.)
