Óglaigh na hÉireann Recruitment Poster, 1922
Óglaigh na hÉireann is an Irish language idiom that can be translated variously as Soldiers of Ireland, Warriors of Ireland, Volunteers of Ireland or Irish Volunteers.
The phrase Óglaigh na hÉireann was coined as an Irish language title for the Irish Volunteers of 1913 and it was retained when the Volunteers became known in English as the Irish Republican Army (IRA) during the War of Independence of 1919–1922. Óglaigh na hÉireann is now the name of the Irish Defence Forces.
