  • Notes:
    • Apparently, there are 2 versions of the album, with very slight differences.
      • Faugh-a-Ballagh with "Clear the Way" in smaller print.
      • Clear the Way with "Faugh-a-Ballagh" in smaller print.
      • The track order is different on both CDs.
      • Clear the Way "is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files."
      • Track variations:
        1.   "God Send Us Peace" only appears on Faugh-a-Ballagh
        2.   "The Bold Fenian Men" only appears on Clear the Way
      • Derek Warfield's Young Wolfe Tones web store lists both CDs, with Faugh-a-Ballagh as "Volume 2" — but, these are the only differences of which I am aware.
