I am searching for a song about Grace Gifford. I'm not looking for the song "Grace" that appears on most Irish Folk albums (As we gather in the chapel here in old Kilmainham Jail......- written by Frank and Sean O'Meara - I Think). This is a differnt song -I've only every heard it once and don't know any prompting lyrics.

As we gather in the chapel here in old Kilmainham Jail
I think about these past few weeks, oh will they say we've failed?
From our school days they have told us we must yearn for liberty
Yet all I want in this dark place is to have you here with me

Oh Grace just hold me in your arms and let this moment linger
They'll take me out at dawn and I will die
With all my love I place this wedding ring upon your finger
There won't be time to share our love for we must say goodbye

Now I know it's hard for you my love to ever understand
The love I bare for these brave men, the love for my dear land
But when Pádraic called me to his side down in the GPO
I had to leave my own sick bed, to him I had to go

Oh, Grace just hold me in your arms and let this moment linger
They'll take me out at dawn and I will die
With all my love I'll place this wedding ring upon your finger
There won't be time to share our love for we must say goodbye

Now as the dawn is breaking, my heart is breaking too
On this May morn as I walk out, my thoughts will be of you
And I'll write some words upon the wall so everyone will know
I loved so much that I could see his blood upon the rose.

Oh, Grace just hold me in your arms and let this moment linger
They'll take me out at dawn and I will die
With all my love I'll place this wedding ring upon your finger
There won't be time to share our love for we must say goodbye
For we must say goodbye

My apologies. I realize this is NOT the song requested by the thread originator, but it's the first time I ever heard the one GUEST, Niall doesn't want and I love it.

Here's Grace Plunkett buying a Dail Loan bond from Michael Collins in 1919, in a film made by her brother-in-law Jack MacDonagh, probably the only film footage of her that survives.

I'm well versed on Irish ballads and Grace is a wonderful songs, especially Anthony Kearns's version. But I've never heard another. You might try contacting Martin dardis's site www.unitedirelandtripod.ie if you ask him he may know or be ab le to find it for you. Good Luck
