Not to do violence to the tune’s import, nor to Pearse nor the Easter rebellion, but if you go back and put the words to the ‘Drunken Sailor’ ditty to the tune, you can work out several variations in the manner of Vaughn Williams.

I’m sure the intro sounds familiar as a hornpipe - not yet another variant of ‘Johnny Cope’? [recent discussion]

Every child in Ireland learned this song, the dogs could bark it.
