"The Big Fellah" is a song by Irish-American folk rock band Black 47. It was the first track on their 1994 album Home of the Brave. The song details the political career of Irish politician and soldier Michael Collins, nicknamed "The Big Fellah." The song begins in the GPO and ends with Collins' death at Béal na Bláth. It is written from the viewpoint of an Irish republican soldier against the Anglo-Irish Treaty.

The lyrics are written and sung by Larry Kirwan. They begin with a stanza in Irish Gaelic, sung by Mary Martello.

The song was featured at the beginning of the episode "Lochan Mor" of Sons of Anarchy.
