The incident, an extension of politico-religious tensions reaching back to the 17th century, became known as "Bloody Sunday" – tragically, the fourth violent event relating to Anglo-Irish relations to be given the name. Images from the scene, including that of Father Edward Daly waving a blood-stained handkerchief for a white flag as friends carried a dying man to safety, provoked horror and anger across the world. In his 2002 memoir Wingspan McCartney recalled: I wrote ‘Give Ireland Back to the Irish,’ we recorded it and I was promptly phoned by the chairman of EMI, explaining that they wouldn’t release it. He thought it was too inflammatory. Although Wings’ 1971 debut album Wild Life had been put together quickly because McCartney felt it was a good way to capture spontaneity, so it could just have been his modus operandi of the time.
Sessions This album has been recorded during the following sessions. Give Ireland Back To The Irish" session (Feb 01, 1972). Mixing "Give Ireland Back To The Irish" (Feb 03, 1972). On 7 March, Wings were filmed rehearsing Give Ireland Back to the Irish at the McCartneys’ St John’s Wood home in London for a segment on ABC News in the United States. The single reached number 1 in Ireland and in Spain. McCartney attributed the song’s success in Spain to its popularity among Basque separatists. The A-side was included as a bonus track on the 1993 Paul McCartney Collection CD reissue of Wild Life.

The "Give Ireland Back to the Irish" single was released by Apple Records on 25 February 1972 in the United Kingdom (as Apple R 5936) and 28 February in the United States (as Apple 1847). Neither ' The Luck Of The Irish ' nor 'Give Ireland Back To The Irish' can do anything but increase the bigotry of the already ignorant.
