Excellent choice Dave! - not meaning to be overly pedantic but it wasn't actually written by Joseph Plunkett just from his POV. It was written in 80's by two brothers from Galway called Frank and Sean O'Meara.


Two mind bendlingly beautiful songs..


The Pogues - Rainy Night In Soho. MacGowan's finest hour.

And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda written by Eric Bogle and recorded by many.. the greatest anti-war song of them all.

Thanks for the info

Also love 'And the Band Played...' What about 'Green Fields of France'? Pretty sure that's Eric Bogle also. Lovely song.

Just going through a break up....loving the songs.

Have to say 'Grace' is a lovely song...'Sweet Sixteen' would be another.

'Bright Blue Rose' - Jimmy McCartney is a very special song, Christy Moore's version is good too.
