Irish Anthem for Sale

The Irish Anthem, Amhran na Bhfiann, or the Soldiers Song is for sale. How, I hear you ask?? Well, the original handwritten version of the song is up for auction with Mealy’s Auctioneers for a price expected to fetch somewhere between EUR 800,000 and EUR 1.2 million. I know one or two people who’d be very interested in buying this, but, I think the government should step in and buy it for a public display!
