That's an excellent piece of vocalistaion of the song by "Cormac O'Moore" as well.
As some Catters may have noticed, maybe not, I'm a big fan of the genre known as the "rebel song". Some great compositions there, largely overlooked in wider musical circles because of the controversy over politics.
How about us doing a Top Twenty Irish Rebel songs. Off the top of my head:
The Soldiers Song,
Bold Fenian Men ("see who comes over the red blossomed heather")
The West's Awake
Erin go Bragh
Boys of Kilmichael
Boys of Mullaghbawn
The Croppy Boy
Broad Black Brimmer
Irish Ways and Irish Laws
Kelly of Killanne
Smashing of the Van
Sean Treacy (Tipperary so far Away)
Rising of the Moon
Memory of the Dead
Outlaw Rapparee - That's enough!
