Michael Healy-Rae has released his election song to the beat of 'Come out you Black and Tans'.
The Kerry TD posted the video on Twitter earlier today.
He says "I don't know why...but this song has been stuck since last week.... well here it is, our election song."

It is unknown if this tone was chosen on purpose due to the controversy over the commemoration ceremony for the Royal Irish Constabulary in Dublin Castle.
Following the decision to postpone the event The Wolfe Tones’ classic rebel song hit the top of the iTunes charts in both Ireland and the UK.
However, it is not the first Healy-Rae song, back in 2014 Michael's nephew Johnny released another country-sounding track.
In the local elections last year West Dublin councillor Trevor Gilligan also penned a song.
