Is Féidir Linn © Rónán Regan

'Is Feidir Linn' was composed by Rónán Regan around the time President Obama visited Ireland in 2011. He began composing this tune during the Dali Lama's visit to Ireland earlier the same year and put the second part to it during Obama's trip. The essence of their speeches were very similar. In terms of the North and in terms of our present economic difficulties, we are resilient and if we pull together 'yes we can' succeed!
