Linkey thing worked and it was lovely. I do believe yer man was wearing a gold shamrock in his ear for my benefit.:ROFLMAO: We don't seem to go out of our way to find trad music these days but I've totally loved the offerings this thread has thrown up.
The boul Damien was wearing that knowing that one day you'd see that video ;)

Thanks for the reminder of a great newer generation Irish Trad musician.
Has many a great song, but this is one of those bits of genius work.

The lyrics to the above song Mise Eire,a poem by Padraig Pearse

I am Ireland:
I am older than the old woman of Beare.
Great my glory:
I who bore Cuchulainn, the brave.
Great my shame:
My own children who sold their mother.
Great my pain:
My irreconcilable enemy who harrasses me continually…
Great my sorrow
That crowd, in whom I placed my trust, died.
I am Ireland:
I am lonelier than the old woman of Beare
