This document, printed and issued by the Communist Party of Ireland Student Group, Northern Area, focuses on Wolfe Tone in song and story. It contains a brief introduction to Tone’s life noting:

Tone’s greatness is that he first gave expression to Irish Republicanism. He also clearly saw the need for unity of the people and recognised the possibilities of a successful armed rebellion at that particular time due to the weakness of the ruling class… sectarianism has taken a dreadful toll amongst the Irish working people and it is only when we have a united working class that we an look forward to a new future of independence and SOCIALISM.

Inside the document reprints the words of various ballads and poems about the United Irishmen, including A Fenian Ballad, The Patriot Maid, Henry Joy, Bodenstown and A Rebel Song. It also reprints the words of The International.
